Out of Touch documents the unique experiences of Western Australians during the COVID-19 pandemic that hit Australia in early 2020.

Robyn Lambird was pushing their body to peak performance ahead of their first Paralympic Games when the news of the postponement came down. The sudden slow down in training, quickly revealed the need to take better care of their body and mind. Robyn, who’s 4th in the world for 100-metre wheelchair racing, has been building in better nutrition and rest, while also growing their role as a fierce disability advocate. Robyn gives us a lot to learn: how we can take care of ourselves and become more inclusive of people with disabilities in our community.
