    HALF-TIME HUDDLE: 'Just having a good support network around you is number one...and number two is positivity', ft. Melissa Wu

    HALF-TIME HUDDLE: 'Just having a good support network around you is number one...and number two is positivity', ft. Melissa Wu

    Hello and Welcome Back to Chicks & Balls the Podcast: A Sports Podcast by Women, about more than womens sport! 

    Today it's just Marlee on the mic, as Keely and Georgia had their day jobs to attend to - but nonetheless we’re all super excited to be bringing you today’s HalfTime Huddle interview! 

    These chats are deeper dive conversations than what we get in our regular eps and they feature some of our favourite athletes and sports insiders.

    Melissa Wu is a name that’s been staple to the Australian Olympic team for well over a decade. The now 29 year old burst onto our screens in 2008 at just 16 years of age where she became the youngest Australian ever to win an Olympic medal in the sport of diving. 

    But before that even, at just 13 she’d medalled at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games and it was clear to all from the very beginning, she was something special. 

    In 2021, she competed in her fourth Olympic games in Tokyo and brought home bronze in the individual 10m platform event, proving once more, with such longevity and success in her career so far, that she’s one of our most consistent and resilient Olympians ever.

    Today we are so stoked to bring this chat with the formidable Melissa Wu to you. She shares all about still growing up while working as a pro athlete, what her day to day life looks like and some really exciting things she’s got coming up in the near future.

    HALF-TIME HUDDLE: "What [my injuries] taught me was alot more about myself and life, than if I'd had a clean bill of health' ft. Matt Duffie

    HALF-TIME HUDDLE: "What [my injuries] taught me was alot more about myself and life, than if I'd had a clean bill of health' ft. Matt Duffie

    Hello and Welcome Back to Chicks & Balls the Podcast: A Sports Podcast by Women, about more than womens sport! 

    What better way to start your Monday than with a special conversation like this Half-Time Huddle episode.

    These chats are deeper dive conversations than what we get in our regular eps and they feature some of our favourite athletes and sports insiders.

    If you are unfamiliar with today’s guest– let us give you some context. Georgia first met Matt when he signed with the Melbourne Storm back in 2009 where he stayed until 2015, since then, he has gone onto play rugby union in New Zealand, including representing the All Blacks, and has now moved his family to Japan where he plays for the Honda Heat. 

    We chat with Matt about getting through the array of injury setbacks he’s had in his career, the switch from league to union and what it feels like to wear an All Blacks jersey, while he’s killing time before his team has clean up duty - a regular punishment for being late to training in Japanese rugby!

    We hope you love this chat as much as we had having it! Massive thanks to Matt for jumping on!

Yeh the gurlz

So refreshing to hear women talking about all sport, doing a great job of it and most importantly having fun! Easy listening, felt like I was in the lounge room laughing with them!

Sauce: fridge vs cupboard

When I put sauce cupboard I shake it first so it’s not watery
