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.
Hear the untold, inside story of the blackest day in sport from former Essendon player, Nathan Lovett-Murray, bureaucrat Richard Eccles and AFL journalist Mick Warner. Emma tries to figure out if the massive drug scandal that traversed codes really was what it was made out to be, or if that moment in time a decade ago, gained more than it damaged?
