Griffith Review says
Celebrate the release of Griffith Review 53: Our Sporting Life in August with editor Julianne Schultz in conversation with some of the smartest minds in sports writing and sports related industries – William McInnes, actor and sports tragic; Naomi McCarthy, Olympic Water Polo gold medalist and manager of Griffith University Sports College; and Sean Dorney, former ABC correspondent for PNG and one time captain of the PNG Rugby League team with a special reading by Jessica White – as they draw links and explode myths about the connection between sport and business, sport and culture, sport and social cohesion, the life of the athlete and the passion of the spectator.

Released to coincide with the Olympics and footy finals seasons, Our Sporting Life goes beyond the headlines with insider reports from major events and small communities. It examines betting and corruption, children’s sports, race, gender and violence in (and around) sport and includes remarkable stories of sport in regional and rural Australia and beyond.

From Olympia to Alice Springs, from the opening bounce to the close of play, from sports fields to boardrooms, from cutting edge strategy to kitchen table yarns, Our Sporting Life includes outstanding sports writers and those who have been involved in the many sports-related industries.
