Look beyond the bright lights and cheering crowds, into the reality of professional sport. The Long Haul takes you past the moments of glory and investigates the price of, and barriers to, success. Over eight episodes, join leading performance coach Emma Murray as she candidly talks to some of our most elite athletes and explores the stories behind the sports we love. We speak to Olympic medalists Cate Campbell and Grant Hackett; AFL's Jack Riewoldt and Josh Bruce; and NBA star Jose Calderon, just to name a few. From the inconceivable drive to be the best, to the weight of expectations and the sacrifices made along the way.
AFL's Jack Riewoldt and wife Carly, Sydney Swifts' coach Briony Akle, St Kilda dietician Alison Miles and NBA player Jose Calderon take Emma inside the moment covid hit, the impact on their lives, clubs and code and what life was really like in the COVID hubs. Hear the real cost that was paid to keep sport going.
