Josh Goldstat made his sporting mark in 2017 when he won 4 gold medals at the Maccabi Games. Aged 42, it was his first serious competition since the 1997 games and his emotional comeback to sport and Maccabiah in particular. After the Games, Josh continued with his training with the aim of representing Australia at the ITU age group world champs in the Gold Coast in September 2018. He trained hard, performed strongly and was one of the first athletes selected for the national team. Josh is a dedicated perfectionist who leaves nothing to chance. This paid off handsomely when he won the world title.  
Come and hear Josh’s incredible story and the challenge
of getting the most out of oneself at various stages of life.
