Aussie gold medallists climb to new heights with Tokyo hopefuls

The AIS Gold Medal Ready (GMR) program is continuing its work to support athletes and NSOs as the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympic Games gets ever closer.

Last month, a group of GMR alumni, including Olympic swimming champion Libby Trickett, spent an afternoon walking up Mt Ainslie in Canberra with members of the Australian Women’s Rowing squad.

Trickett said of the experience: “It’s so amazing to be amongst female athletes, I just resonate so much with them. They are fierce and they are focused, and I really hope in some small way that I help them prepare or help them think a little differently about what the Games are and what they are capable of.”
