Episode 253: Libby Trickett – Olympic highs and depressing lows; in the brain gym with Dr Jenny Brokis

We fell in love with Olympic swimmer Libby Trickett in 2003 when she stormed the Australian swimming championships, then the World Championships in Barcelona. Her career includes 24 gold, 9 silver and 8 bronze medals, and 2 retirements. But it hasn’t always been smooth sailing for this sweetheart of the pool. As well as being a new mum, Libby is now an ambassador for BeyondBlue, and she shares her story with us in this episode.
