Welcome to episode number 3 of Behind the Whistle. The weekly podcast series where we talk to sports officials about their personal officiating journey. We will provide insights in to why these officials do what they do and will be a great way of understanding how they balance their passion for officiating with their personal and professional lives, ensuring that they stay involved in the sports they are passionate about.
Our guest for this episode is Diving judge Gillian Brooker. Gillian has been the CEO of Diving NSW for over 15yrs enabling her to stay involved with the sport that she is passionate about. Gillian has developed a very impressive career as an international diving judge, having attended both the Rio and Tokyo Olympic Games as a diving judge.
I started off by asking Gillian which sport she officiates and to explain how she got in to officiating.
