Emma McKeon // Pool time, pounding the pavement and preparing for Tokyo 2020 Seize the Yay

    • Society & Culture

I just cannot believe how quickly 2020 is approaching. Speaking of 2020, I am SUCH a big fan of the Olympics I get so excited when they come back around and in the lead up to Tokyo 2020, I'm so delighted to have 4 x Olympic Medallist, Emma McKeon, on the show for today's episode.

Being born into a swimming family with her dad as her coach and her brother also an Olympic swimmer, Emma competed at the Summer Youth Olympics before she had even finished school. She missed out on selection for London 2012, but came back in Rio to win a gold, two silvers and an individual bronze and is now preparing rigorously for Tokyo 2020. Knowing absolutely nothing about the swimming world, and LOVING finding out about worlds I've never ventured into, I had a blast chatting to Emma all about her training, what it's like to swim in the Olympics, goal setting and then of course, how she plays. She is also a fellow converted runner adding running to her training having proudly joined the Nike family a few years ago. We did this over the phone so her audio isn't as clear as usual, but hope you enjoy nonetheless.
