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.
On this episode, we chat with Lachie Wales.
As a sport-crazy kid on the Central Coast, as a youngster Lachie tells us how he grew up idolising athletes of many sports.
The speedy winger tells how he developed his pace sprinting on the sand, and the special moments coming through at the Central Coast Mariners before trading the beach for the big smoke and plying his trade at Melbourne City and Western United.
As a player who was promoted from train-on to full squad member status in the recent weeks, and tells us all about what it means to represent his country at the Olympics.
We hope you enjoy our chat with Lachie.
