Kieren Perkins to reveal post-swimming struggles on Australian Story



Gold medal hero Kieren Perkins is taking the plunge into second-time marriage later this year, but first is diving into his own post-swimming struggles on Australian Story.

Perkins, 40, has been an exemplar among the few Australian swimmers in recent history to manage the difficult transition from national sporting idol to relative anonymity.

Now a banking executive at NAB, Perkins has forged a successful new career without the controversies that have dogged so many other household names.

The next two episodes of Australian Story will profile Perkins as he candidly discusses some of his own personal struggles post swimming.
