In Conversation with Andrew Vlahov

Former basketball star Andrew Vlahov, now chair of the Olympic team appeal

We explore Andy’s work with indigenous communities and his commitment to equity and opportunity. Partnerships across cultural and economic barriers dominate as we discuss politics, colonisation and the aligning of intentions.

College basketball, the American system and some realities about physicality in the NBA.

Identity and dealing with new life challenges are my focus. AV has been through his share of injuries, losses and change. How does he cope with life’s uncertainties?

“The opportunity to explore other’s experiences and views continues to surprise and delight me. Thanks Andy.”
