Event description

Description

Australians love sport – it is woven into our folklore, social fabric and weekend routines. But what does this obsession say about us as a nation? Has sport really been a vehicle for social change? Why do we idolise sporting stars?

ABC RN Big Ideas presenter Paul Barclay hosts a discussion about sport and how it has shaped Australian culture and identity with guests:

  • Olympic swimmer Christian Sprenger

  • Matildas soccer player Sally Shipard

  • author John Harms

  • Australian Rugby League Commission member Dr Chris Sarra

  • Wallaroo rugby player Louise Burrows

This panel is part of the Defining Moments in Australian History project, which aims to stimulate public discussion about the events that have profound significance to the Australian people.

Light refreshments will follow the panel discussion.
