Nove australiani coinvolti nel salvataggio nella grotta della Thailandia che ha tenuto il mondo col fiato sospeso hanno ricevuto delle onorificenze al valore tornati in Australia.

Il Governatore Generale, Sir Peter Cosgrove, ha dichiarato che la nazione è orgogliosa dei loro sforzi e che rende onore ai loro servigi.

Il Primo Ministro Malcom Turnbull ha dichiarato agli ospiti del ricevimento a Government House in onore dei nove australiani che hanno contribuito a salvare i 12 membri di una squadra di calcio tailandese e il loro allenatore, che sono fonte d'ispirazione per tutto il mondo.

"During the World Cup, the most inspiring story about football wasn't in Russia, it was in Thailand. And the most inspiring teams were not Les Bleus, but the Wild Boars, and you, above all, the all-nations team that rescued them."

Tutti i nove australiani hanno ricevuto la medaglia dell'Order of Australia per il loro servizio alla comunità internazionale.

Due sono stati i sommozzatori che hanno ricevuto particolare attenzione, guadagnandosi la Star of Courage, il secondo riconoscimento che l'Australia assegna per atti di coraggio.

L'anestesista Richard Harris e il suo compagno di immersioni Craig Challen hanno ricevuto l'onorificenza per quelli che sono stati descritti come "atti di evidente coraggio in circostanze di grande pericolo".

Il dottor Harris ha provveduto alle prime visite mediche dei ragazzi ed ha somministrato l'anestesia che ha addormentato i ragazzi prima che venissero trasportati fuori insieme ai sommozzatori

Il dottor Challen ha aiutato i ragazzi a rimuovere l'equipaggiamento da sommozzatori dopo che gli stessi erano emersi dalla prima zona allagata, per poi aiutare a trasportarli nella sezione successiva e prepararli alla seconda immersione.

Cosgrove ha sottolineato che sia il dottor Harris che il dottor Challen hanno descritto il loro ruolo come assolutamente non eccezionale.

"To those recognised today, let me say that, in gathering the information supporting this recognition, those who did the research reported two invariable elements of your responses. First, that others involved did wonderful work. Also, that you weren't exceptional, you were just doing your bit. Now none of us will dispute the former. On the latter, we think that you were remarkable, skillful, tireless, compassionate and courageous. Your nation is so proud of you. Today, Australia salutes you."

Il dottor Harris ha dichiarato che sia lui sia Challen sono imbarazzati dall'attenzione di tutti.

"We went cave diving for a few days, and we were able to help get the kids out, but, honestly, the media storm and, I mean, these awards have been completely unexpected. And we just try to emphasise how big a part so many people played in this. And we're not quite sure why the spotlight has shone on us as a pair, but it's all quite exciting. I think I just need to get back to work, actually, and stop my head swelling*** and just start to relax again."

Nine Australians involved in the Thailand cave rescue that riveted the world have received bravery awards back home.

Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove says the nation is proud of their efforts and salutes them for their service.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has told a reception at Government House for the nine Australians who helped rescue 12 members of a Thai football team and their coach from a cave they have all inspired the world.

"During the World Cup, the most inspiring story about football wasn't in Russia, it was in Thailand. And the most inspiring teams were not Les Bleus, but the Wild Boars, and you, above all, the all-nations team that rescued them."

All nine Australians have received the Medal of the Order of Australia for their service to the international community.

And two divers were singled out with the Star of Courage, the second-highest bravery award Australia bestows.

Anaesthetist Richard Harris and his dive partner Craig Challen were honoured for what were described as "acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril."

Dr Harris conducted the initial medical assessment of each boy and was responsible for administering anaesthesia before each left the cave with rescue divers.

Dr Challen helped the boys remove their diving equipment after they made it through the first flooded section of the evacuation route, then helped carry them to the next section to get them ready for the next dive.

Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove noted both Dr Harris and Dr Challen have characterised their roles as unexceptional.

"To those recognised today, let me say that, in gathering the information supporting this recognition, those who did the research reported two invariable elements of your responses. First, that others involved did wonderful work. Also, that you weren't exceptional, you were just doing your bit. Now none of us will dispute the former. On the latter, we think that you were remarkable, skillful, tireless, compassionate and courageous. Your nation is so proud of you. Today, Australia salutes you."

Dr Harris says he and Dr Challen are embarrassed by all the attention.

"We went cave diving for a few days, and we were able to help get the kids out, but, honestly, the media storm and, I mean, these awards have been completely unexpected. And we just try to emphasise how big a part so many people played in this. And we're not quite sure why the spotlight has shone on us as a pair, but it's all quite exciting. I think I just need to get back to work, actually, and stop my head swelling*** and just start to relax again."
