    Faster, Higher, Stronger with Jane Kerr Thompson

    Faster, Higher, Stronger with Jane Kerr Thompson

    Were you glued to your TV cheering on Team Canada at the Tokyo Olympics? 

    We were!
    What is it like to be an Olympian, play for Team Canada and win an Olympic medal? 

    These are just some of the things we talk to Jane Kerr Thompson about. She is an Olympian who competed for Team Canada in both the 1984 summer games in Los Angeles and the 1988 games in Seoul Korea where she won a bronze medal in the relay. 

    After her Olympic career Jane went to the University of Florida on a swimming scholarship. She was captain of the team and had many swimming successes during her college career and she graduated with a degree in finance. Today Jane is a Managing Director at Accenture. 
    Jane gives us insight into what it takes to be an elite athlete. How much hard work does it take to become an Olympian? What are athletes feeling just before they walk onto the pool deck for a race? What does it feel like to stand on the podium for Canada?
    We also chat about what happens after the Olympics. How do athletes transition away from their sport? What are some of the challenges they face?

    Here are some of the fun things that came up in conversation today and where you can find them in this episode! 
    16:18 - Canadian Olympian Summer McIntosh
    17:49 - University of Florida Swim Team

    20:50 - Leadership in Swimming: Penny Oleksiak and Kylie Masse
    23:10 - Accenture
    30:50 - Hockey Talk: Seattle Kraken, Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens
    31:54 - Doggie Chat: Beagles and Leonbergers
