    Leo Bergere - The New Olympic Distance Triathlon World Champion

    Leo Bergere - The New Olympic Distance Triathlon World Champion

    The World Champion Olympic distance triathlete of 2022 Leo Bergere joins us to talk about his training, racing and life. Leo tells us exactly what he does in training Monday -> Sunday. Every single session, every detail, in the lead up to winning the World Champs. You can literally copy Leos training after this podcast. We talk about his change from short, fast VO2 max style training to a more volume based aerobic program and how that took his racing to the next level. Everyone expected Alex Yee or Hayden Wilde to win the World Championships & Grand Final this year, but Leo shocked the world and won both. Does this make him the favourite for the next Olympics?

Magnus Ditlev is seen by many people as the favourite to win the Ironman World Championships next year and the guy who could defeat the Norwegians and Jan. Magnus also talks to me about secret bike technology leading into the world champs and how he is going to go even further with it.

    Sam Long - The Ironman 70.3 World Champs Penalty Drama + All Things Triathlon & Training

    Sam Long - The Ironman 70.3 World Champs Penalty Drama + All Things Triathlon & Training

    Sam Long joined me for his first podcast since the Ironman 70.3 World Champs penalty drama that took over the sport of triathlon last week. Sam said to me before the episode “any question you ask me, I will answer it honestly.” And so I asked all the hard questions that we wanted to hear the answers to and Sam literally left nothing out. This is one of the most real, honest, inside access chats I’ve ever had on the podcast. We go deep on the 70.3 World Champs penalty and then the Sam Laidlow drama, watching him at Kona, their relationship, their rivalry - all of it. We then talk training with the Norwegians, Lionel Sanders, is there doping in triathlon and Sam gives some shocking drug testing insight. We go over his training in the lead up to 70.3 worlds, his swimming, will he race Ironman branded races next year, his insane long runs and what changes the sport of triathlon needs to make. And there’s seriously way more. This episode is insane.

    Emma Pallant-Browne - 3rd Place at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships

    Emma Pallant-Browne - 3rd Place at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships

    3rd place finisher at the Ironman 70.3 World Champs Emma Pallant-Browne joins us to chat all things training in the lead up to the World Champs. We recorded this episode in the lead up to the race and I saved it because I had this gut feeling she would podium in the race and it would be so good to post the day after the race. As fate would have it, that happened!! It was a gamble because I wouldn’t have had an episode if Emma DNF’d. Emma combined a strong swim & bike with her world class run to move through the field, onto the podium and put together one of the best performances of her career. She is also close to the most likeable person in triathlon, so if you listen and don’t love her, I don’t get you! But seriously, Emma finishing on the podium at the World Champs is one of the biggest feel good stories in triathlon this year.
