AFL Eagles inspired by Olympic Games gold

AAP logoAAP 8/08/2016

West Coast defender Will Schofield says Australia's women's 4x100m freestyle win at the Rio Olympics helped inspire the Eagles to victory in the western derby against Fremantle.

Bronte and Cate Campbell produced powerful third and fourth legs to lift Australia to gold, and West Coast came from behind to turn a 15-point deficit into a 46-point win.

Schofield said coach Adam Simpson had touched on the 4x100m relay win before the derby, and the players had it at the forefront of their mind as they powered to victory.
