All That Glitters

Lydia Lassila has come back from injuries and come back from child birth to not only become Australia’s first female winter athlete to compete at five Games but has also become Australia's most-decorated female skier having won gold in 2010 and bronze four years later in Sochi. During this time, she also started a business - Body Ice and then a second business Body Ice Women and has recently started her third, Zone by Lydia.

A Whole New Ballgame

We chat to 5 time Winter Olympian, gold medalist, entrepreneur and all round legend Lydia Lassila.If you look up 'Trailblazer' in the dictionary it should feature nothing other than a picture of Lydia and a list of her achievements. Today we chat about how she stumbled across aerial skiing, became a world and Olympic champion, and what drove her to success despite multiple injuries that would have finished lesser athletes. Through injury Lydia created her now thriving business BodyIce and we chat about the challenges and triumphs during the journey of the brand. She's a keen surfer too and together with her 'Murfer' mates down in Lorne Victoria, is putting together a holistic surf retreat in Indonesia, which promises to be awesome.
