Alex Hill - From Loxton North to Tokyo Gold


Turning passion into power

Olympic Gold Medalist Alex Hill joined the podcast to speak over his success at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games and his journey into the sport of rowing. Growing up from very humble beginnings in Loxton North, Alex was your typical river kid, and always showed a strong liking to the water. However his passion for rowing was lost for a brief period during his high schooling in Adelaide. It was a piece of feedback given to him from a school rowing coach that made him double down on the sport and from there he never wavered from there. Fast forward after 11 years in the sport he now holds a silver medal at the Rio Games and recently the gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Games.
