election day, volunteer numbers has risen to 600. With only enough money for one mail drop, the campaign used community contacts, face-to-face meetings and social media – run by the younger members of the team – to reach a large and disparate community. Social media was described as “crucial” in the campaign. The team drew upon the theories of Marshall Ganz, the Harvard alumnus and pioneer of grassroots political organising, to persuade voters of a need for change. And as the campaign went on, and the national media got a whiff of a possible boilover, attention turned to the north-east and momentum built. Well before the election was called, the team ran their figures and knew they could win on 25 per cent of the primary vote: McGowan ended up getting 32.8. She later said Liberal Party HQ should have seen this coming. When asked the secret of their success, Benedyka ticks off a list of key objectives that could come straight from an MBA handbook: “Planning, vision, follow-through, community.” Turns out that the winning strategy for a successful independent candidate is so pithy it could be written on the back of a country business card. \

PLAYING

TO WIN He has devoted his life to sporting glory, but Eamon Sullivan tells NICOLE HADDOW he sometimes just wants to play the fool

PIcTure \ LOuIse M. cOOPer


Cover Story

I

t won’t come as a surprise that Eamon Sullivan likes to win – not just in the pool, but at everything he tries. “Whether it’s rhythmic gymnastics or pretending to be a horse on all fours – I want to win,” he says. Kicking back on a long blue bench seat at Channel Ten’s headquarters, Sullivan is talking about some of the left-field challenges involved in his role as a team leader on Ten’s new family entertainment show, A League of Their Own. In his olive-green jeans, denim shirt and casual sneakers, he could be mistaken for any average 28-year-old. His casual attire and disarming grin are an excellent disguise for the core of fierce competitiveness just under the surface. What is surprising, though, is the fact that this three-time Commonwealth gold medallist and two-time Olympic silver medallist places clowning around just as high on his list of his priorities as winning. That why he has relished the opportunity to play the fool during his gig on A League of Their Own. The show, hosted by comedian Tommy Little, involves team captains Sullivan and Pat Cash competing in quizzes, funny games and sporting challenges, including trying their hand at V8 racing, gymnastics and cycling, among other things. It provides a welcome comic relief from the serious demands of Sullivan’s other pursuits. The Perth-born freestyle champion has focussed on winning since he started swimming competitively at the age of 13. So it’s refreshing for him to invite people to laugh at his shortcomings. “It’s quite funny when you try your hardest at something and you still look ridiculous,” he says. His grin widens as he hints at the quirky trivia questions that might be asked on the show. “Here are three sports stars, what are their favourite smells? It’s weird answers, like ‘sniffing a baby’,” he explains. “They’re all true facts.” Here’s another quirky question: which sports star set up a Twitter account for his dog, Baxter, and tweets on his behalf? The answer is: Eamon Sullivan. “It was a Saturday night in the peak of training,” Sullivan says. “I was sitting on the couch as usual. I looked at Baxter and thought, ‘What are you thinking?’ Then I thought, ‘I’ll just make it up’.” Baxter’s Twitter feed highlights Sullivan’s cheeky side: “Is that a tennis ball in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?” Baxter tweets to Sullivan. The three-year-old French bulldog hasn’t tweeted for more than a year but still boasts more than 600 followers. “He might make a comeback,” Sullivan chuckles. “But then Duke [Sullivan’s other French bulldog] will be jealous that he doesn’t have Twitter.” Social media hasn’t been all fun and games for Sullivan. He has received plenty of negative feedback for his performances from some of his 33,000 Twitter followers, particularly during the London 2012 Olympics, when many felt he failed to live up to his golden promise. “If you make one mistake there’s quite a negative response,” he says. “It’s disappointing when people have nothing better to do than slag you off or write something mean.” Still Sullivan insists nasty tweets are like “water off a duck’s back” and the only opinions that matter to him are those of his father, John, mother Pam, sister Pia, and his friends. “I just love to have fun,” he says. “Ask my friends. I’ll pester them until they break. I’m like a little brother that doesn’t quit. I don’t like being serious.”

Within the Olympic swimming team, he’s known for taking photos of his teammates taking a nap and posting them on Instagram. He says that growing up, he loved Jim Carrey and Rowan Atkinson and admired their ability to please a crowd. But when you’re a public figure, a bit of tomfoolery can turn into national news. Late last year, there was an incident involving a motorised scooter and a café patron during a buck’s party in Adelaide, which ended up with Sullivan pleading guilty to disorderly conduct and paying a $1000 fine. “Whenever I do have fun there’s photos. It’s made me a lot more cautious of having fun in public, which is a shame for me, but at the same time it’s fine. I enjoy going out for dinner and having a red wine instead of causing havoc,” he says. A havoc-free life will become inevitable now that the Australian Olympic Committee has declared Sullivan eligible for selection for the 2016 swimming team for Rio de Janeiro. There had been a question mark hovering over Sullivan’s Olympic future, and that of five teammates, investigated for taking the sedative Stilnox during a wild “team bonding” night in Manchester ahead of the London Olympics. Sullivan confessed to using the drug and publicly apologised. On August 23, the AOC announced he and the others would not face formal sanctions, but were on notice that no further indiscretions would be tolerated.

T

he decision has come as a huge relief to Sullivan, even though he admits that after his last Olympic experience, he contemplated throwing in the towel. He says there have been times in the past year when he battled with the idea of having to return to life as a “complete saint”, relinquishing fun and a social life to have a crack at gold again. “After London I was really disillusioned,” he says. “Obviously it wasn’t a great experience. You question yourself, why do I put myself through all the pain of training to be painted in a negative way?” But he’s not ready to give up the pool just yet. In June, after 10 months on dry land, Sullivan took his first dip since London. “Just having that feeling of watching the sun come up and being in the water and being around friends – it was something I really missed,” he says. “I’m not ready to bow out after the way London panned out.” He reckons he has only another three years of top-level swimming left in him. “You only have one shot at your sport and getting your life set up,” he says. “I really want to do that right.” Sullivan has had six major operations during his career and says it’s unusual for a swimmer to have even one. “I was going for speed, strength and power. My body just kept breaking down,” he says. The upside of the operations, he says, was that they gave him time to think and get in touch with his spiritual side. He has marked many of these occasions with tattoos. He twists his wrists to reveal two small Chinese characters – “this means good fortune” – then lifts his shirt to reveal more charcoal-coloured ink on the right side of his abdomen. “That’s a reiki symbol for strength and protection.” A scar from an emergency appendix removal adds texture to the artwork. He also has an unfinished Zen circle that represents moving away from a chosen path and making one’s own destiny. This is perhaps the most symbolic for Sullivan, who is already carving out a path in hospitality. After winning Celebrity MasterChef in 2009 with a decadent chocolate délice, Sullivan went on to share his

culinary flair with West Australians, opening Subiaco café Louis Baxters in 2011 with former MasterChef senior producer Laki Baker. Then, in March this year, he opened North Fremantle restaurant Bib & Tucker. It’s not bad for a kid who was a fussy eater until he learned to cook during home economics classes at John XXIII College in Mount Claremont, Perth. When the restaurant opened he was up at 5am and wouldn’t get home until midnight. “During the day I’d have a muffin and a handful of chips. It was go, go, go.” Pole-vaulter Steve Hooker and hockey player Jamie Dwyer are also investors in the restaurant, which has had more than its share of teething problems, including structural issues, lease woes and, initially, no liquor licence. But soon the restaurant began to hum and, once again, Sullivan was winning. Between owning a café and a restaurant, starring in a new television show and training for the next Olympics, he hasn’t left much time for leisure or for love. Sullivan hasn’t been publicly linked to a woman since he split with fellow Olympic swimmer Stephanie Rice in 2008. He dodges the subject of women as deftly as he tumble-turns at the end of a lane. “Looking back on it, I haven’t had time for a social life,” is all he’ll say. In May, Sullivan posted a picture on Instagram of himself sitting at a table alone with the caption, “I built a table … I have no one else to use it with.” While his tone and image are facetious – a companion clearly took the photo – it’s tempting to wonder why he’s cramming his life with work, responsibility and

“I just love to have fun. I’ll pester my friends until they break. I’m like a little brother that doesn’t quit.” relentless athletic demands when he could be taking his good looks and easy charm out on the town, enjoying himself and making the most of his remaining youth. Surely one bad experience at a buck’s party hasn’t forced him to quit public frivolity entirely? “It’s never too late to have fun,” he says. “I’m the first to admit I would never have been a lawyer or a vet, so while I’m doing my sport and I’ve got options, I want to use what I have now to pave my way for the future so I can have fun when I’m retired.” In the meantime, it’s not all pain in pursuit of gain. Before the intensity of training kicks in there’s still time for culinary tours of whatever city he happens to be in. After filming A League of Their Own wraps, he plans to hit Melbourne and check out his mate George Calombaris’ latest offering, Gazi. “George brings out a new restaurant pretty much every week,” Sullivan jokes. If not frequenting a Calombaris venue he might be found waiting his turn in line outside a food truck or grabbing a coffee. “Melbourne’s really got the whole coffee roaster and boutique thing down pat,” he says. He won’t rule out expanding his West Australian brand of hospitality to the east coast but, for the moment, he has enough on his plate. “I’m on the non-plan plan. I know the things I’m interested in. I could go anywhere,” he says. But before he goes anywhere, he’ll go to Rio. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au We WelCome your feedbACk @

on’t get me wrong; I was impressed by the food at Bistro K – pleasing flavours, an original Korean-nuanced approach to fusion cuisine and gorgeous presentation. But before it arrived I was already charmed by the enthusiasm of the staff. “You’ve chosen all my favourite dishes,” said one young waitress. “Whenever I eat here those are the dishes I choose.” You’d think a reviewer would be immune to employee approval of menu choices. I would have thought so too. But her fervour seemed genuine rather than solicitous and it was catching. Besides, she and her colleagues doted on my young dining companion, who is studying Korea at school and thought he would be able to provide additional insight. The young waitress’ favourites were golden fried, batter-coated fillets of salmon and butterfish that arrived on a pale, textured pottery dish, drizzled with a sticky, sweet chilli sauce and sprinkled with crushed nuts. Not complicated cuisine and not especially Korean, but moreish nonetheless. Our young co-reviewer preferred the milder flavour of the butterfish, which was creamy and delicate. Another of the approved choices was crispy mungbean pancakes, fanned across a pretty white platter and served with a dipping sauce of soy, mirin and vinegar. No wonder. The delicate legume purée gives the patties a refined, airy texture that contrasts with small, tender diced pieces of pork (there’s also a vegetable version), and the salty, sweet and sour elements of the sauce are a pleasant flavour enhancer. The young man and I would like the recipe, please (apparently it was the chef’s mother’s). My dish of the night was a sous vide pork belly with a soybean citron sauce, served with apple and kimchi chips. This is available as a small or larger dish but, as with all of the value-for-money mains at Bistro K, ours was accompanied by bowls of steamed black rice and miso soup. The generous main serve contains two thick pieces of perfectly cooked pork belly, its fat rendered to mouth-coating velvet and its flesh meltingly tender. The syrupy citron sauce (most dishes contain a sweet element) is acidic enough to cut through the pork’s richness, helped by a side of shredded kimchi and spring onion salad. Dehydrated slices of apple and kimchi add a decorative element, but their crunch dissipates quickly and they aren’t substantial enough to add lasting impact. Chef Jae Park and his business partner, Sharon Jeon, opened Bistro K at the quiet end of Smith Street about four months ago. Korean-born and trained, Park has worked at Seoul’s French-inspired Hotel Shilla as well as Italian and French restaurants in the US, and he spent 18 months at Melbourne’s Nobu. Jeon has worked for Korea’s Hyatt hotels and ran a Melbourne business supplying Korean foods. Park’s menu is a product of his background and not determinedly Korean. It features bibimbap, the national dish of mixed rice, meat and vegetables; bulgogi, richly marinated grilled beef; and kimchi, spicy, fermented cabbage, but there are many elements that are Japanese influenced too. A short list of traditional Korean alcoholic drinks, from soju (distilled rice spirit) to bok bun ja (sweet berry wine), appear on the placemat-style menu. Our waitress

DEEp-FRIED SEAFOOD BALLS

recommended mae chui soon (green plum wine), which was aromatic, with a sweet body and a slightly tart finish. There are also cocktail jugs for sharing, ciders, a few Korean beers and a selection of Korean teas. My young companion struggled through a proportionately large bowl of chicken legs and wings, listed on the menu as slow-cooked spicy chicken stew with chunky vegetables. Our kind waitress made sure the sweet chilli and soy sauce wasn’t too hot for him and he enjoyed its rich, sweet flavours and the tender poultry pieces. It wasn’t especially traditional, either. Also non-traditional were some rather fun deep-fried seafood balls, comprised of pieces of fish, octopus, prawns, tofu, zucchini and carrot. The riot of textures is softened by a creamy cauliflower purée and enhanced by another sweet chilli sauce. The bibimbap with bulgogi beef (also available with salmon or butterfish) was a fruit-bowl-sized pottery dish filled with spinach leaves, grilled eggplant, pieces of meat, a scattering of enoki mushrooms and a sous vide poached egg. An accompanying platter held a collection of pickled vegetables and a bowl of dark chilli sauce, plus the was the rice and miso soup. Toss the lot in and mix it up. That’s probably a metaphor for this intriguing new bistro. It seems to work. \ ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au

Exposed-brick walls and a collection of irregular-shaped light-fittings suspended in the front window add warmth to the interior at this minimalist bistro. Elegant curved pale timber chairs and stools at solid-topped matching tables create uniformity, while a series of red-enamelled lightshades break the neutral tones. Placemat menus and ordered shelving behind a solid-timber bar keep things streamlined, but inflexible surfaces, including polished concrete floors, can make things rowdy. A rear room with a wallpaper mural and faux fireplace is an escape from the din. \

The look

Botanical fever, lace for spring flings and silhouettes that flirt with the past – this spring racing season is all about the romantic message that pastel still rules, bold colour is hot to trot and accessories are the key to a winning trackside look.

pring is the perfect excuse to embrace colour – what’s more, it will be expected of you trackside this racing season. Get ready for an abundance of botanical prints, floral dresses and feminine silhouettes. For the ladies, it’s all about sophisticated styling with a point of difference – a 21st century shape with a nod to the past. The flushed hues of the ’60s are back, the twirling romance of the ’50s hitches a ride, and a bold move to digital print elegance makes a sexy statement this spring. Ted Baker takes us on a fantastical journey for spring/ summer. It’s where the womanly shapes of the ’50s and ’60s make a citrus splash and dreamy comeback. Fruity lime and mandarin shades feature heavily in pleated skirts and sheer tops – there are maxi dresses and above-the-knee flirty floral frocks, too. The colour palette? Good enough to eat. We are tipping coral, zesty lemon and aquamarine pastels for a sheer trackside look. Australian label Milk from a Thistle is all about bold digital prints in chic suiting and dresses for the warmer months. Print-lovers will adore the silk tunics – it’s here you can let the print do the talking while matching simple accessories for a minimalist look. According to designer Danielle Atkinson, whose brand is all about geometric prints and painterly floral landscapes inspired by Swedish summers, opting for suiting from her collection will keep you looking sharp and sophisticated but edgy enough to set you apart from

Carbohydrates tend to suffer in popularity contests thanks to high-protein diets. But good wholesome carbs are essential for energy production and transport. Carbohydrates are the principal energy source for muscle and muscle exertion. They also facilitate protein retention. Good carbohydrates are vital for the digestion, transport and utilisation of other nutrients. The most common myth with carbs is that they turn to fat stores. But for a healthy person, the process of converting carbohydrates into fat stores is insignificant. All foods contain kilojoules and if overeaten will cause weight gain; carbohydrates are not the devil – unbalanced eating is. As with most things, portion size still needs to be considered. dairy Foods

(istockphoto \ thinkstock)

Milk, yoghurt and cheese are tremendous sources of bone-boosting nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D. Dairy foods also contain proteins that assist cell regeneration, muscle repair and recovery. Studies suggest milk is an ideal sports recovery drink and yoghurt enhances intestinal health. Fruit and vEgEtaBlEs

It’s no surprise that fruit and vegies are winners. They contain a plethora of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals that assist energy production, transport and use. They also enhance immune strength, which supports endurance.

A Sunday afternoon drinking session that is followed up with more drinking on a few week nights, then again on Saturday, will overload the liver, kidneys, pancreas and blood. The intense energy required to filter out these toxins will leave little energy for everyday life. takEaWay Food

Takeaway and fast foods are usually high in unnecessary fats and sugars, and usually don’t provide enough vegetables for a main meal. However, the main concern is the salt content. High salt loads promote high blood pressure, decrease bone density and increase the risk of obesity and some cancers. EnErgy drinks

Energy drinks typically have 27 teaspoons of sugar a serve. That’s about half a cup of sugar. If they are labelled “diet”, the problem is artificial sweeteners – they may be low in calories, but they are non-nutrients and do not support energy production and endurance. For long-tErm EndurancE:

Wholesome nutrition is required for everyday functioning of bodily organs. If excessive toxins are circulating in the body, everyday functioning becomes a struggle. It increases the energy needed to perform normal tasks, which removes energy for daily living, and affects endurance. Food consumption is an investment in your future.
