Professional athletes are more than what they bring to the court. Beyond the glimpses we catch on screen during a few hours each week across a four-month season, there are injuries, mental struggles, and countless stories that we don’t get to see.

Launching this Saturday via Kayo Sports, Sunshine Coast Lightning’s I AM series delves into the stories of several Lightning athletes. Each episode explores the players’ unique backgrounds, the passions that drive them, and what has shaped them into the athletes and people they are today.

The series aims to show another side to our players, offering Members, fans and the wider public an opportunity to connect with them on a deeper level.


The first episode, featuring Mahalia Cassidy, will be available via Kayo Sports this Saturday, 8 June at 4pm AEST.
