Against all odds, the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games have been beyond inspiring. On a recent annual leave day that I’d earmarked for life admin (yawn!), I instead found myself glued to the TV cheering on our incredible Australian swimmers – how good especially was Emma McKeon’s efforts in snagging a record seven medals, including four golds? That impressive haul makes her Australia’s most successful Olympian ever. What an achievement! I must confess, I also gave a giant cheer when South African Tatjana Schoenmaker won gold in the women’s 200m breaststroke final – she made my home country extremely proud! The fact these games have united us all in trying times has been better than any gold medal though. Check out our favourite moments on page 6. If the athletes have inspired…

triumphs & tears of joy!

Having already been postponed by a year and set to play out amid a spiking pandemic without cheering crowds, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad faced its fair share of hurdles. Right out of the gate, however, Team Australia – led by a slew of record-smashing female swimmers – achieved its most successful first week in Olympic history: nine gold medals in seven days, beating the previous record of eight, achieved in both Sydney and Athens. As the medal tally continues to tick over, and with much of the nation in lockdown, the jaw-dropping performances and inspiring stories of humanity are providing a much needed lift in countless lounge rooms.

unforgettable moments

Australia’s first surfing medallist Owen Wright, 31, took home bronze, six years after a crippling head injury. “It was a true Aussie underdog story,” he said. Qatar’s Mutaz Essa Barshim and Italy’s Gianmarco Tamberi, 29, opted to share the gold medal in the men’s high jump. “This is beyond sport,” Barshim, 30, said. “This is the message we deliver to the young generation.” Patrick Tiernan, 26, showed his mettle, pushing his exhausted body over the finish line of the 10,000m. “There was no way I wasn’t going to finish that race,” he said. “You put the Australian jersey on and you’ve got to do your country proud.” Sydney law student Rohan Browning, 23, dubbed “The Flying Mullet", won his heat – and the nation's hearts – clocking the second-fastest 100m ever by an…

katy & orlando’s italian honeymoon

Arriving in Italy for the second time in as many months, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom joined their fellow celebrities at the annual UNICEF Italia and LuisaViaRoma Summer Gala on July 3. While the pair, who are ambassadors for the charity, were graciously all smiles on the red carpet and with the singer pulling out a show-stopping performance for guests later in the evening, it was clear they were craving some alone time. And that’s exactly what they got the very next day, with the lovebirds getting hot and heavy while aboard a private yacht near Capri. “They love each other”-SOURCE Perry, 36, and Bloom, 44, couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they stole some precious moments together while their family were nearby looking after their daughter Daisy, 11 months,…

is harry’s bromance over?

Prince Harry opened up about his close friendship with neighbour Orlando Bloom, 44, in May, telling Dax Shepard the pair regularly texted. So it came as a shock when the trailer for HBO Max’s new animated series The Prince dropped and Bloom was voicing the character of his pal! The satire series follows the fictional trials of Prince George, 8, as he grows up in the palace, and shows Harry as out of touch. Bloom has defended the series, saying it’s not meant to be “malicious”. “[Harry’s] really got his finger on the pulse,” Bloom told The Hollywood Reporter. “He’s so smart and so zeitgeisty. I rolled the dice on it, but I’m going to have to mention it to Prince Harry when I next see him, because I’m not going to…
