Matt Wiltshire has described himself as a "one trick pony", but he couldn't care less.
After all, he will forever be a Stawell Gift champion.
The 28-year-old lived out a sporting dream when he won the nation's most famous footrace in a magical Easter at Central Park back in 2012.

The triumph was the culmination of a long-time plan hatched by respected coach Peter O'Dwyer and bettered the efforts of Wiltshire's grandfather, who was favourite for the event back in 1958 but sustained an injury.
While Wiltshire's running career never reached any significant heights after that success nearly a decade ago, it has certainly given him opportunities to grow in other areas of life.
"I was thinking before the race that it was one where you get $40,000 and that's how it changed your life, just from a money point of view," Wiltshire says in the latest Off The Record podcast.
"I know pretty much every job I've got since then, winning Stawell was a major factor in that actually taking place.
"I know it sounds stupid and I don't want to come across as if I walk around and everybody respects me, but it's one of those things where it definitely does change people's initial mindset when they know it. They know you're a pretty dedicated person, I guess, and if you have your mindset on something then you can achieve it."
In the podcast, Wiltshire discusses the joy of that famous victory, the journey required to win a unique handicap race, how he spent the prizemoney, a serious boating accident in recent years and what's to come down the track.
