Off The Podium
It’s basketball time once again here on Off The Podium as we chat with an absolute legend of the sport in two-time Aussie Olympian Chris Anstey about his incredible career and Olympic experiences in Sydney and Beijing! We find out from Chris just how he ‘accidentally’ got into basketball and what other Olympic sport he very much could’ve represented Australia in. We also find out how his experiences at the Sydney Olympics brought him both one of his greatest ever memories and worst ever memories as well as how he dealt with the disappointment of not being able to go to Athens in 2004. Added to this we learn about his different mindset heading into the Beijing Olympics in 2008, just how big the rivalry between Australia and Lithuania was during the 2000s and how close we might be to having another Anstey suit up in an Olympics some time soon. It’s an incredible chat that you won’t want to miss!
At one point in your childhood, you probably thought you’d go to the Olympics. The hosts running this podcast still have those dreams, but they channeled that energy into a talk show about the games.
