Hear from Olympic athlete and country girl Jess Stenson

As a proud partner of the Australian Olympic Team, MLA is hosting an exclusive special Olympics Unleashed online session with Olympian Jessica Stenson on Tuesday 1 December and invites you to join the session. Presented in an interactive and engaging way, the athlete’s story demonstrates the lifelong benefits of goal-setting, developing resilience and pursuing passions to inspire Aussies to be their very best.

The session has been designed for school aged children through to adult audiences and viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout.

A two-time Olympic marathoner, Jessica is aiming for her third Games in Tokyo. Jessica will share insights of her journey to the Olympic Games, the challenges she’s faced during COVID-19 and messages about motivation, resilience and the importance of goal-setting.

Olympics Unleashed, presented by Optus, has taken Olympians and national athletes aspiring to the Tokyo Games and beyond into Australian schools across QLD, NSW, ACT and SA since November 2018. Due to COVID-19 and the evolving environment, the program has evolved into an online version to allow athletes to connect with the community on a virtual video-conferencing platform.

We’re proud to bring you this exclusive opportunity and encourage your family to join in.
