Olympian Paul Di Bella
Paul Di Bella heralds from a small town in Far North Queensland in Australia. At a young age Paul worked out that he could run fast, and it wasn’t long before the world of athletics was in front of him.
We relive his journey from the time that he left home to move to Brisbane to train, and we hear of the setbacks that he encountered on the way, setbacks that made him hungrier and more determined to achieve his goals – to represent his country at the Olympic Games.
Paul achieved his goal twice, at the 2000 Games in Sydney and four years later in Athens Greece.
We discover Paul’s life after his athletics career, and how these days, he is focused on giving back to the next generation and uncovering perhaps the next star of the track. If you don’t believe you can’t achieve your dreams perhaps because of where you live, or where you were born, then listen to this episode and embrace plenty of inspiration.
