Did you know one of the first battles the Japanese lost in World War II took place in Papua New Guinea? The Australians held the Japanese off in a historical battle and our guest today travelled the Kokoda Trek where it all took place. Part amazing athletic feat and adventure and part history lesson, today's Athlete On Fire is taking us across the globe to learn more about the history and about the present day challenges to complete the trek. Our athlete hails from Sydney and was given the task of training one of the most famous chefs in Australia for the adventure, all for charity.
