NSWIS LIGHTS UP – BRONTE HALLIGAN – OLYMPIAN (Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5)

On Demand

This is Bronte Halligan’s remarkable story of resilience, grit and determination, spurred on by her love of water polo.


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Follow the high performance journey of Olympian water polo player Bronte Halligan in NSWIS Lights Up, an athlete documentary series. With a father who was a rugby league superstar, and a sister who represented New Zealand in Surf Life Saving, Bronte Halligan grew up in a family that was so competitive the loser of their card games had to do the washing up! The water polo Olympian reveals the purpose of that was to strive to be better versions of themselves through honing the competitive spirit. Her parents instilled in their children that the requirements to become a good person and a good athlete was dedication, time, commitment and values. Halligan shares why, in a house that was fiercely pro-New Zealand, she willingly embraced Australia and the nation’s green and gold battle colours. #NSWISLightsUp
