Ep 39 - Interview with Liam Adams The Running Guy Podcast

    • Running

Liam Adams passage to his first Olympics in Rio 2016 was certainly filled with lots of barriers that he just managed to hurdle on the very last day of the qualification period. To say the Tokyo 2020 qualification was a lot easier would be far from accurate, when Liam's first attempt of running the 2:11:30 required time on the Gold Coast in 2019 fell short by just 6 seconds. Having the disappointment of the 2016 Lake Biwa DNF result in his mind when his hamstring failed, Liam was determined to make sure he did what ever was needed to make this one count and secure his spot on the Australian Team. With the COVID pandemic just starting to shut down the globe and cause the cancellation of travelling and racing, Liam wasn't fully aware at the time of how huge it was when he crossed the line running a 2:10:48 and earning himself the number one spot on the Australian team and running the fastest marathon by an Aussie in 13 years. Liam is as gritty as they come and I'm extremely excited to see how his 2nd Olympic Marathon unfolds along with the other 5 members of the team. All the best Liam, Brett, Jack, Lisa, Sinead and Ellie.
