Taliqua Clancy // Origins, Olympics and Old Gold Seize the Yay

    • Society & Culture

I'm joined this week by our first Wulli Wulli woman, Beach volleyball Olympian and Commonwealth silver medallist, Taliqua Clancy. You've probably seen I've been reflecting on Seize the Yay's commitment to diversity (of all kinds), but also, in light of the past few weeks, the best way to contribute to the BIPOC dialogue specifically and Taliqua is the first of a few wonderful guests coming up who offer some generously personal and thought provoking insights to the conversation.

Growing up in Kingaroy QLD (otherwise known as "peanut town") over 200km from the nearest beach, you wouldn't expect Olympic success at beach volleyball to be in Taliqua's future. And yet, she reached the quarter finals in the Rio Olympics becoming the first Aboriginal Olympian to compete in the sport and is on her way to the slightly delayed Tokyo Olympics next year. Taliqua is also an Ambassador for our mutually beloved Cadbury who are launching an amazing Smart Watch campaign this week to support us all staying active in #iso which you'll hear more about. I hope you enjoy as much as I did...

NOTE: Terra Nullius is the concept we discussed, that you might want to research.
