SAS Australia on Channel 7 – “This is the chance to show Australia who I am” Peter Bol takes on SAS Australia 

Twelve new celebrity recruits will attempt to pass selection on SAS Australia’s gruelling Middle Eastern desert course when the hit series returns 7.30pm Monday, 9 October on Channel 7 and 7plus 

Career suspended. Reputation trashed. Accused of being a drug cheat. 

He was cleared of doping, but is the damage done? Two-time Australian Olympian Peter Bol says he’s taking on the SAS course to restore his reputation.

“The only way you stay strong is by understanding what you stand for. This is the chance to show Australia what that is and who I am. The doping scandal has motivated me to be the best in the world.”

Peter is determined to finish the course and pass selection, and with the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in August, the risk of injury on the course is a gamble he’s prepared to take.

For the first time on SAS Australia, the new celebrity recruits will travel offshore to a secret base in the Middle East where they will eat, sleep and train together in punishingly hot and arid conditions, with no allowances or exceptions made for their celebrity status or gender. 

The star recruits set to take on SAS Australia in 2023 are: 

Abbey Holmes, 32 – AFL Field Commentator

Anthony Mundine, 47 – World Champion Boxer

Boyd Cordner, 30 – Retired NRL Star

Cassie Sainsbury, 28 – Convicted Drug Smuggler
