It's time to visit a brand new sport on the show today as we chat with two-time Australian Olympic basketballer Marianna Tolo to talk about her amazing career in the sport as well as her Olympic experiences and everything else in between! We find out from Marianna what drew her to the sport and why basketball is so popular in Far North Queensland. We also learn about her Olympic ambitions from a young age and just how inspiring it was watching the success of the Opals at the Olympics growing up. Added to this we find out more from that epic game against Puerto Rico in Tokyo, learn about her unique hobby and discover which global sporting superstar she bumped into at lunch during the Rio Olympics. It's a fun chat that we know you'll love, so get to listening!
