Matildas remain undefeated in Olympic qualifying

The Australian women's football team has won all three of their Olympic qualification matches following a 2-0 defeat of Korea Republic on Friday night

The Matildas have continued their unbeaten run on the road to Rio, notching up their third straight win against the Korea Republic, 2-0, on Friday night.

 

Coming off a 3-1 win against Japan and a dominant 9-0 performance against Vietnam last week, VIS athletes Steph Catley and Lisa De Vanna again played crucial roles in the team’s success.

 

De Vanna was dangerous up front, providing two assists, and narrowly missing another chance as the co-captain led by example.

 

Defender Steph Catley also proved useful as she slid a ball in for substitute Caitlin Foord to produce a clinical finish that was later called offside.

 

The side will regroup ahead of their remaining two clashes against DPR Korea and China PR next week, needing to finish in the top two of the group to gain Olympic qualification.

Face to Face Again | Carol Cooke AM

February 10th, 2021

This week for the first time in almost a year I had a speaking gig, in person, face to face. In the last year I have done a number of gigs but because of Covid-19 they have all be virtual. That’s okay but it certainly isn’t the same as being face to face with your audience. To be able to gage their body language, their facial expressions, or how much you have them interested in your story is so much easier when you are in the same room and not looking at them on a screen.
