Peter’s Journey​

Today, Peter is an accomplished middle distance runner who holds the current national 800m record and in 2021, he became the first Australian athlete in 53 years to make it to the 800m final at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

    ❝ Peter Bol has been involved with the Victorian Institute of Sport’s (VIS) Community Programs from 2016 to 2020 and during that period has been one of the most popular speakers and VIS facility tour guides.
    Peter has a fantastic story to share along with a great personality and charisma that his audience is drawn towards. He has a way of relating to all the groups he has worked with here at the VIS, from primary school students, secondary students to international university students or corporations. It doesn’t matter what group he speaks to, he has a way of connecting with them.
    Since joining the VIS Community Programs in 2016, he has grown in confidence and competence, to the stage where he was able to host the VIS TV sessions at our Awards of Excellence.
    Coming to Australia as a refugee from South Sudan, Peter demonstrates resilience and overcoming adversity. Everyone can learn something from his story and I would definitely   recommend him as your next guest speaker.❞
