Hi, I'm Mike. I was born in London however I've spent the last 10 years working on Melbourne's biggest sporting events including the Australian Open tennis, Formula One Grand Prix, AFL Grand Final and more. I love Melbourne's sporting culture so much that 18 months ago I decided to create Melbourne's first ever sports walking tour. I'm now living my dream and I'd love to show you why Melbourne is considered the sports capital of the world.
