    That's actually China time FP , this link is pretty good for telling AEST , and you can choose by sport as well if you like. Sullivans 100m Final is 12.49 our time.

    Ahh, thanks for that. One less thing to think about, which is always a good thing. I've saved the link and now know to be at the kitchen table at around 12:45 for Sullivan's final... cheers :-)
