In case you missed it, Australia unveiled its uber-preppy 2016 Olympics Opening Ceremony Uniform designed by Sportscraft at a special presentation in Bondi Beach this morning. We at PEDESTRIAN.TV went along to ask some of the Olympic athletes to give their quick tips to success, which were then broadcast on the P.TV Snapchat story.
Here is a snapshot of the top tips to success from five talented members of this year’s Australian Olympic team:
Jamie Dwyer, Men’s Hockey – 2004 Athens, gold; 2008 Beijing, bronze; 2012 London, bronze:
“Work hard, that’s for sure, prepare the best you can and hopefully you have success!”
Penny Taylor, Women’s Basketball – 2004 Athens, silver; 2008 Beijing, silver:
“You’ve probably heard it a million times, but work hard. There’s no substitute for hard work, there are no shortcuts.”
Annette Edmondson, cycling – 2012 London, bronze:
“My tip for success is PASSION: you’ve really gotta love what you do.”
Ed Jenkins, Rugby 7s:
“Hard work will beat talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”
Taliqua Clancy, Beach volleyball:
“Keep working hard, and never give up no matter what people say. If it’s important to you, and it’s your dream, go for it.”
Ok, so the main point is: work bloody hard.
