Hello and Welcome to Unearthing Wellbeing with me Ask Elizabeth, Where Our Greatest Wealth Is Health.
I had the pleasure of having Anabelle Smith on the podcast. Anabelle is a dual Olympian in the sport of diving. She is an Olympic bronze medallist, three-time Commonwealth Games bronze medalist and has been on the National team for 10 years. Anabelle is dedicated to being the best version of herself in sport, and in life and puts great passion into sharing her experiences with other people.
During my chat with Anabelle it was clear that she is very self- driven, passionate, kind and confident. Her purpose is to leave a positive legacy in Australian sport, and be an exceptional role model for the next generation. As this was recorded earlier in the year, Anabelle expressed her hopes for competing in the Tokyo Olympics.
Anabelle currently sits on the Olympians Club of Victoria Board, and is also helping to shape Australia’s sporting future on the inaugural AIS Athlete Advisory Committee. She is a recipient of the 2019 John Landy Scholarship through the Victorian Olympic Council, 2019 AMP 'Tomorrow Maker', 2017 sole Australian Olympian representative at the International Olympic Academy Youth Program in Greece, 2016 Victorian Institute of Sport ‘Spirit’ award winner, Sports Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship recipient 2008, and 9 x Diving Victoria Athlete of the year.
Aside from discussing her journey and career highlights, Anabelle spoke about some of her lowest points when she first moved to Brisbane on her own.
She told me how she had to make a conscious effort to ensure that the experiences she went through would not occur again. Anabelle noted that if it weren’t for them though, and hindsight, she wouldn’t have a repertoire of techniques at her disposal to assist her, and putting her wellbeing as her priority. Training smarter, not harder and implementing Wellness Wednesday’s, allows her to be at her prime both mentally and physically.
It was such a pleasure speaking with Annabelle, she was so lovely and compassionate.
