National sport stars tell it straight – Play by the Rules

Four of Australia’s best known sport stars have each recorded a 30-second Community Service Announcement for the national Play by the Rules initiative to promote safe, fair and inclusive sport. The big four are:

  • Peter Siddle (Australian Cricket Team)
  • Anna Meares (Cycling Gold Medallist, 2012 Olympics)
  • Archie Thompson (Socceroos and Melbourne Victory) 
  • Anna Flanagan (Hockeyroos)

The messages capture the best of our sporting spirit: that it's fine to be competitive, but everyone deserves respect and a fair go, fellow competitors and officials alike, and regardless of their race, gender, religion, or sexual preference. The announcements will be broadcast between 14 February and 14 April 2013.
