Experiencing Olympic withdrawals?

In this week’s episode, we unpack the Tokyo Olympics for sports parents. We think you’ll agree, it’s been a cracking few weeks watching the world’s best athletes compete on the biggest stage in sport — after a roller-coaster lead-in to the event, including a 12-month postponement of the Games.

You’ll hear us discuss our highlights from the Olympics, from some of the iconic moments and hands-down stand outs to performances that flew under the radar. Plus, the wonderful and memorable reactions from families and friends, who were unable to travel to Tokyo to show their support.

In particular, this Olympics has been a fantastic celebration of athletes’ parents, who we know have also endured blood, sweat, and many tears.

Listen to the episode and see whether you agree with us! Let us know what your highlights were on our Facebook or Instagram pages. Importantly, what impact has the Olympics had on your sports kids? We share some of the ways our own two kids have been inspired by watching the Games.

With John based in Queensland for work, and me keeping things going on the home front in Sydney while he is away, there’s a bit of raw emotion in this episode, along with a few tears, laughs, and concessions.
