Olympics Unleashed, presented by Optus, takes Olympians and athletes aspiring to the Tokyo Games and beyond, into Australian schools to inspire and motivate students to be their personal best.

With Australians adapting to our new normal, Olympics Unleashed, presented by Optus, is now ONLINE and ready to connect Olympians & aspiring athletes with schools and students through virtual classrooms.

Maps to the curriculum
The sessions inspire and motivate students to be their personal best, whether that’s in the classroom, the playground, the sporting field or at home. Curriculum-aligned lesson plans support the interactive session.

Free for schools, Olympians and athletes aspiring for Tokyo 2020 and beyond will host 40 minute online presentations which will involve athletes sharing lessons from their Olympic journey that every student can learn from.

Presented in an interactive and engaging way, athletes will share how they set goals, overcome challenges and demonstrate resilience throughout their athletic journey.


Hundreds of Queensland primary schools have welcomed athlete visits online and in person
