    The Deep Dive with Craig Mottram – Part 1

    The Deep Dive with Craig Mottram – Part 1

    Craig Mottram is arguably Australia’s greatest ever athlete. He was a competitor and true fighter unlike any other.

    In an era where most Westerners feared the East African’s “Buster” was the only non African athlete to push them, challenge them and often beat them. He showed no fear on the track and his confidence and ambition was often polarising, but led also to his great popularity, similar in many ways  to that of the great Steve Prefontaine 30 years before. He was just a winner.

    The only non African  to medal at a world championship 5000m race since 1987, (he won Bronze in 2005)he also took out Silver at the 2006 Commonwealth games,  in an era of distance running that is without peer. He routinely raced and beat names like Eliud Kipchoge, Kenenisa  Bekele, Haile Gebreselassie and Mo Farah. He is a 4 time Olympian and some of his PBS and Australian records namely 12.55.76 for 5000m and 8.03.50 for 2 mile will stand for a very long time.

    Tune into to this cracking 3 part series as Rick explores the mind and training of a true once In a generation athlete.

    The Deep Dive is a monthly show featuring in depth interviews with athletes from around the world as they share their personal stories of what it takes to excel and push themselves to achieve their best.
