Julia Wilkinson’s green bra is ‘a talisman of frightening power’


Quote off The Star. A bit superstitious, yes, into yoga also in order ‘to conquer the swimmer’s inner demons‘.

One example: As a 14-year-old, Wilkinson put great store into the winning properties of purple Gatorade. When she headed to a meet in Victoria, she worried that non-primary-coloured sports drinks may not yet have made their way out west. So she filled an entire suitcase with purple Gatorade.

However, Gatorade is a speculative aid. The green sports bra has proven magical powers.
