SPEAKERS: Waleed Aly
SESSION INFO: Award winning journalist, TV host and academic Waleed Aly is set to deliver this year's oration at The Sports Writers Festival in Melbourne. Waleed will discuss Australia's sporting obsession. Australians think of their country as a sports mad nation. We pride ourselves on the success of our national teams and the achievements of our sporting stars. What does it say about who we are that our identity is so heavily invested in the games we play and the athletes we admire - and revile?
