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!

Episode 11: Darya Klishina, Athletics

At the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Darya Klishina cast a lonely figure. 

The long jumper was the only Russian athlete permitted to compete in the Athletics competition at those Games. 

Following the outcome of the McLaren report into state-sponsored doping in Russia, Darya was able to prove herself a clean athlete, having lived and trained in America for 3 years.

In this podcast, Darya talks about that rollercoaster week in Rio and how she hopes her Olympic experience will be more enjoyable in Tokyo. 

Plus, we hear about her early life in Russia, how she’s learnt to speak English thanks to her life-changing move to the USA and her recent step into the music industry.
