A VIS Docu-Series: The Quest for Paris

The Victorian Institute of Sport is excited to announce an Olympic and Paralympic docu-series: The Quest for Paris.

Featuring three-time Olympian, Anabelle Smith, who faces a formidable injury as she endeavors to secure her fourth Olympic Games qualification, and Paralympic swimmer, Col Pearse, chasing to turn his Tokyo 2020 bronze medal into a gold in Paris… if he can learn to control his competition nerves.



In late 2022 Anabelle Smith, a three-time Olympian and one of Australia’s greatest divers, took a holiday.

She returned with her career, and plans for a fourth Olympic campaign, in tatters.

Or so it seemed.

The telling of Anabelle’s remarkable quest for Paris begins here, with a compelling Victorian Institute of Sport documentary.





Coming in August, 2024.
