Stuff the Silver, we are Going for Gold
Welcome to the Laurie Lawrence podcast, Stuff the Silver, we are Going for Gold. Laurie Lawrence, a top athlete in his own right, is a former Australian Rugby Union Representative and Olympic and World Champion Swim coach.
This podcast will start with a collection of stories from his two books, Lawrence of Australia and Five Ring Fever. These stories document Laurie's 50-year international coaching career, his triumphs and the people he met along the way including some of Australia's swimming greats - Duncan Armstrong, Dawn Fraser, Tracey Wickham and Lisa Curry-Kenny, to name a few.
Laurie will also interview some of the remarkable sportsmen and sportswomen that he's encountered throughout his career, in a way that only Laurie Lawrence can - direct, sincere and honest.
The podcast is not meant to be a quick fix to get you achieving. It's simply meant to be a help, a guide, a companion in the tough times. Laurie wants to show that dreams are important and we must hold onto those dreams. However, without hard work, those dreams are only fantasies. The perfect result is when we dream and then make those dreams come true.
