Bianca Walkden is one of Britain’s most successful sports stars. The 29-year-old is a triple world champion in Taekwondo and has an Olympic bronze medal from Rio 2016.
All of her major successes have come after not one, but two ACL ruptures. Bianca discusses how those injuries have made her stronger and how she hopes to win gold at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Plus, we hear about one of the best and worst days of her life, her perfect Taekwondo family and the tasty Italian business that she runs in her hometown of Liverpool.

At the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Chris Mears shared the honour of becoming Great Britain’s first Olympic Diving champion. Along with Jack Laugher, the pair won the gold medal in the synchronised 3m springboard event.
For the first My Defining Moments episode of 2021, Chris speaks openly about the mental health struggles he’s had since winning Olympic gold and how the recent lockdown has helped him.
Plus we hear the story of his near death experience as a teenager, receiving an MBE from Prince Charles and being able to feel the crowd in his feet at London 2012!
Listen to Chris talk me through how his music career is going, and how he hopes to improve on the millions of streams he’s had in 2020!

Thank you for listening and I’ll be back soon for more My Defining Moments.
5 Paralympic gold medals, 12 World titles and 5 Defining Moments for Hannah Cockroft! ‘Hurricane’ Hannah is the latest guest to join me on My Defining Moments, as the T34 Wheelchair racer discusses the highs and lows of her career so far.
Since winning 2 Paralympic titles at a home Games aged just 20, Hannah has gone on to dominate her event. A seven year undefeated streak came to an end at the hands of her younger compatriot. But, as Hannah explains, that only fueled the fire for greater success.
Listen to Hannah explain how she first got into sport at a relatively late age, what it’s like to receive an MBE and her shock at the addition of the 800 metres to the Paralympic program!
Plus we hear about her dream week; breaking world records AND being prom Queen, getting mobbed in Westfields shopping centre and how presenting Countryfile affected her career on the track.
