Ambassador Richard Court AC launched the AUS+RALLY sports diplomacy initiative with Wallabies Head Coach Mr Michael Cheika, Olympic gold-medal-winning swimmer Ms Leisel Jones OAM, Paralympic gold-medal-winning para-canoeist Mr Curtis McGrath OAM and Japan’s Minister for Reconstruction H.E. Mr Hiromichi Watanabe. AUS+RALLY will celebrate Australia and Japan’s shared sporting passions, values and the connections sport unlocks in 2019 and 2020.
Launched in partnership with Rugby Australia, the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) and Paralympics Australia, the AUS+RALLY sports diplomacy initiative celebrates Team Australia in Japan. The AUS+RALLY campaign name combines the Japanese name for ‘Australia’ with a rallying call for Team Australia as the world’s sporting attention turns to Japan.
AUS+RALLY brings together new and existing sports diplomacy activities through a communications and events program. The program is intended to support Japan’s hosting of the world’s greatest sporting events and their important legacy.
