Welcome to the Olyroos podcast, where we take football fans inside camp in Japan to help you get to know our players that little bit better.
During this episode, we catch up with Nathaniel Atkinson- a man that’s experienced a roller-coast few years to reach this point.
Just a couple of months ago, Nat thought his Olympic dreams were crushed after suffering another hamstring injury. But he worked his way back, got himself fit in time for A-League finals and as they say: the rest is history.
Off the back of that memorable Grand Final triumph we also cover growing up in Tasmania – the few sporting role models from his state – and the challenges of moving away from home at 14 and graduating to the first team at Melbourne City.
