A big chat coming down your speakers today as we chat with Australian Olympic gold medal winning sailor Matt Wearn to learn about his incredible win in Tokyo 2020 as well as his even more incredible sailing career! We find out from Matt which other sport he very much could've been a champion in and what made him make the ultimate decision to pursue sailing. We also find out how the selection came to choose the Laser class and the intense rivalry he has had with fellow Olympic gold medallist Tom Burton in the sport over the last few years. Added to this we find out what it was like to be part of such a historic day at the Olympics for Australia, the weird experiences of carrying his gold medal through airport security and how his friends reacted to being able to lick the back of his head.
