Episode 14: Eilidh Doyle, Athletics

Earlier this month, Scottish 400 metre hurdler Eilidh Doyle announced her retirement from Athletics. So it was only right that I invited her onto the podcast for an in-depth exit interview!

We covered everything. From the pressure of London 2012, to the relief of winning European gold, Eilidh has experienced it all.

Hear how Eilidh actually quit the sport in her late teens, why she missed Christine Ohuruogu in the call room and how she briefly ended up living with her coach Malcolm Arnold.

This episode is littered with superb insights into life as an athlete, it really is one for the die-hard athleticos!

Please spread the word about My Defining Moments and leave a comment if you are enjoying the podcast. I’m @ChrisBrownSport on social media, so feel free to get in touch!

Eilidh was such a pleasure to speak to, so please enjoy this episode!

Thanks for listening!

Episode 13: Chris Brown, Athletics

Don’t panic. This episode isn’t actually about me and my love of Athletics! For episode 13, I had to invite my namesake Chris Brown onto the podcast.

The Bahamian star of Track and Field has enjoyed a glorious career spanning over 20 years. Nicknamed “Fireman”, Chris has won 14 global medals, indoors and out.

London 2012 saw the 400m legend lead off the Bahamas relay team to a famous gold medal, which definitely helped appease many individual 4th place finishes at major championships.

So, which 5 defining moments has Chris Brown chosen? Listen as Chris Brown asks Chris Brown!

Episode 12: Andy Lapthorne, Wheelchair Tennis

The French Open tennis is currently taking place at Roland Garros and I was lucky enough to speak to one of the competitors on site.

British quad wheelchair tennis player Andy Lapthorne has won two grand slam singles titles, multiple doubles trophies and a trio of Paralympic medals.

In this podcast, Andy speaks about the mistakes he made during his early career, his maiden grand slam title and his rivalry with Australian Dylan Alcott.

Plus, we hear about his love for West Ham United, his Paralympic celebrations in Rio and how he struggled with his mental health in 2020.

Andy managed to win another Quad Doubles title in Roland Garros this week, to complete the career slam and still has a busy summer lined up!
