A special visit to the Starlight Foundation

28 March 2018

PYEONGCHANG 2018: Five 2018 Australian Olympians have made a very special stop on their Welcome Home Tour to the Starlight Express Room at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital.

PyeongChang silver medallists Jarryd Hughes and Matt Graham, alongside triple Olympian Britt Cox and first timers Emily Arthur and Jakara Anthony joined in a special Winter Olympic themed performance, which was broadcast to over 200 children in their beds in the hospital.

They answered all the fun and tough questions during a Q&A session with Captain Starlight, before playing video games and signing autographs for the patients and their families.
