NEW EPISODE IS UP
This week Shannon and Fiona - through the wonders of modern technology - had a chat with the phenomenal Katie Kelly OAM. Katie was born with moderate hearing loss and was later diagnosed with Usher Syndrome (Deaf Blind condition) in her mid 20s and declared legally blind at the start of 2015. Katie began training for paratriathlon for the Rio Paralympics and the next 18 months were chock-full of training, competing and winning, concluding with the Rio gold medal. You’ll get goosebumps too when you hear her talk through that moment she shared with her guide Michellie Jones.
An incredible, tireless, super lovely woman who also loves a beer! Australia’s very lucky to have someone like Katie Kelly as one of its own.
