The Australian rowing team is better placed for Tokyo 2021 than it would have been at last year’s postponed Olympics. And it’s all thanks to COVID.
Jokes and Joys was launched across 12 locations with guests from parliament, including Bronwyn Bishop, sharing their favourite jokes in the book. Sky News said guests attending the launch “say laughter is desperately needed in an era of political correctness”.
Ms Rinehart first began gathering jokes and stories for friends in hospital which have now been gathered into a book called ‘Jokes and Joys’. All profits from the book are going to the Cambodian Children’s Fund, Shine Awards, the Royal Flying Doctor’s Service and the Country Women’s Association.
It’s a story full of twists and turns involving a back injury, a chance meeting at a hen’s party, a global pandemic, a tournament in Wuhan and an Aussie still hoping to write a fairytale ending.
Australian Artistic Swimming team co-captains and Rio Olympians, Amie Thompson and Emily Rogers will represent Australia at this year’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
