It’s not just the pharmacy industry who will be spotted at APP2021 – this year’s attendees will be treated to guest appearances from several sporting legends.

Sally Pearson
Olympic Gold Medallist and two-time World Champion hurdler, Sally Pearson has spent a career pushing her body to its limits. To make it as one of the world’s greatest hurdlers, Sally’s needed to be BodySmart. She learned to understand every part of her body and how it performs. She didn’t just use this knowledge to win medals, but also to overcome injuries.

Now, as part of the Nature’s Own BodySmart Team, Sally is bringing her wealth of body knowledge to help Australians become smarter about their bodies.

When: Friday 21 May & Saturday 22 May, 11.00am – 3.00pm | Where: Sanofi: 181 – 186

Guy Leech
Former Ironman World Champion, Guy Leech, has been a leader in the world of health and fitness for more than 35 years. But when his friend suffered sudden cardiac arrest in front of him in early 2016, Guy felt something he rarely experiences: powerlessness. Since that tragic day, Guy has been campaigning for public and easy access to defibrillators. 

After learning first-hand that sudden cardiac arrest can strike anywhere and anytime, Guy has partnered with Stryker, world leader in the development of external defibrillators, to bring defibrillators to more Australian businesses and individuals through Heart180.

When: Friday 21 May, 9.30am – 5.00pm | Where: Pharmacy Platform stand: 152 & 153

Michael Clarke
For many, Michael Clarke is best known as a sporting legend and the former Australian Cricket Captain – but for one little girl, he’s known simply as dad. It was an unforgettable experience as Clarkey and his family sat in the hospital’s emergency department due to his daughter’s first asthma attack. 

Michael Clarke has since signed-up to be wheezo’s brand ambassador, to promote this game changing technology and to raise awareness about the importance of asthma management.

When: Saturday 22 May, 10.30am – 3.00pm | Where: Pharmacy Platform stand: 152 & 153

Simon Black
Simon Black has had one of the most distinguished careers in AFL history. In addition to winning both the Brownlow and the Norm Smith medals, Simon’s Brisbane Lions took home the AFL Premiership three times during his tenure at the club.

These days, Simon is a high-performance coach who uses his knowledge and experience to help others be smarter with their bodies. That makes him the perfect addition to the Nature’s Own BodySmart Team.

When: Friday 21 May & Saturday 22 May, 11.00am – 3.00pm | Where: Sanofi stand: 181 – 186
