Lauren Jackson is the GOAT in Australian women's basketball. Her last Olympic games was in 2012 and she retired from the sport in 2016 after a routine leg wax while recovering from an ACL injury went bad.

Then, in 2022, aged 41, she made a comeback to the sport and now at 43 she is part of the team who qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympics. 

In the third episode of this special No Filter mini-series, Lauren talks to guest host Libby Trickett about how guilty she feels leaving her two young boys to travel for work and what she puts her body through every day. And is she going to Paris?
