Where the biggest names in the world of sport go one-on-one with sports journalist Mark Howard. From ultimate highs to tear-jerking lows, Howie lifts the lid on the real stories behind the headlines. He sits down with the biggest names in Australian & world sport, finding out how they started out, what makes them tick, how they deal with the big wins and the big losses, and how they take on sport and life from here.
#TheHowieGames |Australian surfing star and 2012 world champion Joel Parkinson announced earlier this year that he will retire at the end of the WSL season. A 17-year veteran of the Championship Tour his style and grace on the board will be missed. Joel's journey to the top is a story of hanging in there when many would have given up. Four times Joel was runner-up in the World Title race. Four times his dream was crushed. Four times he watched someone else lift up the trophy. However, in 2012 Joel did fulfil his dream and it's fair to say that he is continuing to live it.
#TheHowieGames | 4-time Olympian Leisel Jones is a legend of her sport. Her career includes 14 individual world records, 9 Olympic medals including 3 Gold, 7 World Championships titles, 10 Commonwealth Games Gold medals and 23 National titles.
