The Golden Years
Date: Wednesday 27 March // Time: 10am – 12noon
What happens when you go from winning gold medals to wiping yoghurt off them?
Australian swimmer Libby Trickett collected 24 gold medals from her wins at the Olympics, Commonwealth Games and World Championships.
That all changed 10 years ago when she retired from competition. She and her husband Luke had a miscarriage in 2014, and then had their little girls, Poppy in 2015, and Edwina last year.
It was a steep learning curve for Trickett who went from being in the world spotlight, travelling and training at a frenetic pace, to staying at home with young children.
She experienced a period of post-natal depression, and has subsequently become an advocate for women’s mental health.
She will share her personal journey from the deep end to the kiddy pool.
