face fear, live large

Rarely this well groomed, so attention must be paid! On October 16, Team WH (above) swapped leggings for full-blown glam to celebrate the ninth annual Women in Sport Awards. Special thanks to the sponsors who made it possible: the Australian Federal Government, the AIS, Toyota, Channel 7 and Rebel, who’ve recently launched a new mentoring program to support women in sport. Turn to p107 to hear from one of the newest recruits. And catch all the 2019 WinS action from p10. Recently, I stumbled across a post by former WH cover star, New York-based trainer and kick-arse babe, Kirsty Godso that got me thinking in the best possible way. In it, she wrote about the fact that – as humans – we spend the majority of our time trying to avoid…

behind our big night

There’s nothing more inspiring than being in a room with 200 of Australia’s most successful female athletes, sporting leaders and supporters to celebrate the biggest sporting moments of the past 12 months at the 2019 Women in Sport (WinS) Awards. Now in its ninth year, the room full of world-record-breakers, Olympians and Paralympians at The Venue Alexandria, in Sydney, included Sportswoman of the Year nominees CrossFitter Tia-Clair Toomey and slalom canoeist Jessica Fox, plus WH November cover star, Paralympian Madison de Rozario. Sunrise’s Mark Beretta and swimming royalty Giaan Rooney hosted the awards. From 17-year-old swimming sensation Lani Pallister taking out the One to Watch award to netball legend Liz Ellis being inducted into the Hall of Fame by her best friend and former team-mate Catherine Cox, it was a night full…

That is, coffee, milk and ice – it’s a winner from every angle!” Every cafe will have its own recipe, Feren adds, so make it clear you’re after your regular coffee order on ice, and watch out for flavoured versions spiked with sugary syrups.…
