Iconic Tokyo 2020 Olympians ready to changes lives at your next event
With Australia having smashed records across the board at Tokyo 2020, it’s fair to say we all have a few questions we’d like to ask the athletes. To be able to win the most gold medals in Australian history is one thing, but to do so in the face of over a year of training restrictions and a delayed Olympics is another achievement entirely.
There is a lot we can learn from how our Olympians mentally prepare themselves for the biggest event in their career, but who to choose? Check out these iconic athletic superstars that have just come on board to inspire your team through trials and tribulations:

100m backstroke world record holder and Tokyo Olympic Games triple gold medallist Kaylee McKeown returns with an incredible haul of Olympic medals from her debut Games’ appearance.
McKeown’s rapid rise consolidates her standing as one of the undisputed superstars of international swimming.

Kaylee is a special talent and an outstanding role model for young women & education clients.
