Tonight on Not the Footy Show – 25 Nov 2009

Tonight’s show is all about endurance as we catch up with three Western Australians who give the word stamina, a new meaning. I’m glad that our show is only 2-hours long.

As usual we promise to continue covering topics that are not necessarily run of the mill and tonight we talk to two men in their 60’s who put a lot of us to shame.


A-league Football
The Central Coast Mariners have scored 9 goals in their last two games and former Perth Glory striker Nik Mrdja is finding form. We will talk to the former Glory striker about how much he is looking forward to playing his former club on Friday night.


The West Coast Fever has announced their squad for the coming season and there are a few changes in personnel. They have also started pre-season training, so we catch up with Joh Curran to find out what the mood is like amongst the girls.

The Warriors start to the season has not been the one everyone would have hoped for, but we have seen young talent given a chance. Tonight we catch up with Luke Towers during their Ford Ranger Cup Clash with NSW.

Ironman WA is just over a week away and we are catching up again with Melbourne based West Australian Kelly Jarrett, who has since we last spoke, has turned professional and will be heading over to Busselton to try and take out the women’s event. We will also find out what it has meant to focus totally on the sport she loves.

Wheelchair triathlon
We will then catch up with 62-year-old wheelchair athlete Bob Thomas who recently competed in the Triathlon World Championships held here in Perth.

Wheelbarrow man
If that made you feel tired wait till you hear David Baird’s story! He ran across Australia and into the Guinness Book of World Records by pushing a wheelbarrow across the country, from Cottesloe to Manly. He too is in his 60’s! Not only is that remarkable but when you hear he had to give up rugby because of a bad back it is even more incredible.
