Millions of people watched last year and, centre stage, was Yvonne Sampson - a rising star in sports broadcasting.
In the March 4 edition of Weekend, country kid Sampson talks about her love of football and her family, and her adoption.
Weekend also examines the pressure on professional athletes as they transition from their sporting careers to retirement.
And for those of us who are not professional athletes (or living with one), a mental health expert also shares tips on how to deal with other life changes like having a baby, redundancies or going from work to retirement.
