Training hard and living well - sporting excellence forum

Are you aspiring to join the National team or want to compete at the highest levels? Having a tough time juggling training and making it to a friends' party? You're not the first!

Please join me at a panel forum with top sporting experts to discuss the process, tips and tricks for reaching your athletic aspirations while maintaining your life balance.

Rob de Castella: One of Australia's greatest marathon runners, 'Deeks' dominated marathons worldwide through the 1980s, was voted Australian of the Year in 1983, directed the Australian Institute of Sport for five years in the 1990s and currently directs the Indigenous Marathon Project.

Heather Garriock: Heather is a Matilda veteran and is the respected head coach of the Canberra United side. Heather played 130 matches for the Matildas, appearing at two Olympic football tournaments and three FIFA Women's World Cups.

Sue Read: As a former elite weightlifter, athlete and Matilda, Sue has a deep understanding of the pressures involved with elite sport. Sue has been practising as a clinical psychologist for 14 years at her business, Life Unlimited. Sue’s experiences in elite level sport have given her key insights into how to continually perform under peak pressure, and an understanding and appreciation of how to maintain peak physical and mental health whilst balancing an elite sporting career with family and work commitments.
