Lindy Burgess-Singleton's netball achievements are well-known on the border but we hear a very different side of her story in this week's podcast.
The three-time Toni Wilson medallist shares her experience of a marriage breakdown and the parenting challenge which followed, bringing her almost to the point of quitting the sport altogether.
Burgess-Singleton recalls a period of three months when she didn't leave home, sending her children out to do the shopping rather than face people on the street.
But her story is one of resilience, bouncing back from the tough times and continuing to inspire others in the world of sport.

From playing state league in Melbourne, where Neale Daniher and Kevin Sheedy were among her closest friends, to the inception of Ovens and Murray netball and later saving Corowa-Rutherglen from dropping out of the league, Burgess-Singleton's journey is like few others.
And the first netballer to be inducted into the O and M Hall of Fame shares the sort of insights any coach would value, with memories of an impromptu Shannon Noll singalong and why questions relating to a player's period were so vital when it came to helping both the individual and the team.
