The Olympic Games have always been a site of soft diplomacy for participating nations. This has never been truer than in 2024, as athletes and countries prepare to compete from 26 July to 11 August at the Paris Olympic Games. Olympic champion and CEO of the Australian Sports Commission Kieren Perkins joins award-winning sports reporter Tracey Holmes to discuss the future of the games, and examine how Olympic competition is shaped by the tensions of geopolitical affairs. Together, they’ll deep-dive into Australian representation at the Games and discuss international divisions and points of connection. They’ll also look ahead to a major event in Australia’s calendar: the 2032 Brisbane Olympics.
