Episode 2 featuring Libby Trickett

Prime Effect

In this episode of the Prime Effect Podcast, we are joined by Olympian Libby Trickett. Libby won an astonishing 9 Gold medals across the Olympic Games and Commonwealth games she competed in. Equally as impressive, in the spirit of what we’re all about here at Prime Effect, are her efforts out of the pool as a mental health advocate. Her raw honesty, of her ups and downs in life, makes her one of the most relatable, approachable and likeable former athletes to speak to.  This episode was brought to you by the nutrition and dietetics experts, Fuel Your Life, the wonderful team of wealth advisors at Wealth Depot, and the finance broking experts at SW Brokerage.    About your host: David Shillington is the CEO of Prime Effect and host of this podcast. As a former athlete himself, having played in the NRL and for the QLD Maroons, David looks to uncover the stories of achievement and resilience from his guests. As a Principle Master Instructor with Mental Health First Aid Australia, he is passionate about normalising the conversation around mental health and promoting a proactive approach to feeling and performing our best.Produced By The Podcast Boss

Libby Trickett - Finding Happiness After The Olympic Gold Rush

Tech Seeking Human

Libby Trickett is an Australian Swimming Champion. With 4 Olympic Gold Medals to her name, across 3 Olympic games, the last games in London in 2012, Libby is simply ‘elite’. But life after the pool wasn’t so easy on her. She has openly discussed her mental struggles in her transition from the pool to a working life, and again in this podcast, goes into quite a bit of detail on her struggles.This podcast came about as a chance encounter. I stumbled on Libby’s name replying to a comment from fitness tech brand Peloton, asking ‘when is the treadmill coming to Australia’? As a fellow obsessed Peloton devotee, I reached out, as I was naturally inquisitive to hear how an Australia Olympic champion was using the platform.Libby is a wonderful human as you’ll hear in this podcast. The sort of person that, after you listen to this podcast, it will feel as though you’ve known her for years. An honest, open, hilarious, and humble human. It’s absolutely no surprise to anyone as to why the country fell in love with her as an athlete, and why she continues to inspire people through her podcast, and her work outside of the pool.Could she be the first influencer to lead a Peloton community in Australia? Absolutely. I’d certainly take every single one of her classes!This podcast openly discusses mental health and depression. If you are struggling with mental health challenges, or feel the need to talk to anyone, please do reach out to Beyond Blue. We both, Libby and I, feel that depression is something that should be openly discussed and normalised. Please don’t feel afraid to have a conversation.Beyond Blue: https://www.beyondblue.org.au/get-support/get-immediate-support

The RMA Podcast. Episode 39. Transitions in life, mental health and fear of failure with Libby Trickett.

The RMA Podcast

On this episode of the RMA podcast we chat to 4 x Olympic and commonwealth games medalist and swimmer, Libby Trickett! We chat to Libby about her career in sport, her struggles finding her passions out of the pool after retirement, and her journey to motherhood and beyond.  We discuss the highs of her sporting career, and the crushing lows of finding her identity after retirement, navigating motherhood and struggles with post natal depression. We also chat about Libby's running journey and how being active and healthy is part of her wholistic approach to her life. This conversation is for every woman who navigates the waters of life, and about seeking out what brings us joy and fulfilment, whilst juggling the balls that life throws at us, sometimes in the most unexpected ways.  It is about building character through setbacks, seeking opportunities that light us up, and dipping our toes into experiences that take us out of our comfort zones.  We talk about how to harness our fears to try new things, and how to not take ourselves too seriously when things fail, and that its important to find the humour in our everyday lives.  We openly share our thoughts on normalising conversations around mental health, and if you are struggling with your mental health, where and how to seek support.    Libby has moved on from her glory days in the pool to finding her passion in the mental health space, studying counselling, whilst juggling parenting, dabbling in podcasting on her podcast, "All That Glitters", and is now an author of a beautiful memoir, Beneath the Surface.  You can follow along Libby's journey over on instagram at @libby_trickett  This podcast is brought to you by Fisiocrem Australia.
