    For this episode, we had the great pleasure of speaking with American swimmer Jessica Long. She’s a four time Paralympian and has won 23 Paralympic medals, including 13 gold medals, 52 World Championship medals and she has also broken multiple world records. We speak about her background of being adopted at the age of 13 months and having to amputate both legs below the knees and how the pool became the one place she was free from her prosthetics but also about making a Paralympic debut at age 12, the dangers of comparing yourself to others and how to believe in your own strength and ability to overcome difficulties.

    In our third episode of the season, we were fortunate to get to speak with the first ever Spanish skeleton pilot, Ander Mirambell. He’s a three-time Olympian, the second person ever to become a two time North American Cup overall Champion and the true pioneer of Spanish skeleton. We speak about his introduction to skeleton and the road to becoming a professional athlete and an Olympian in a sport that did not previously exist in your country, the meaning of creativity and thinking outside of the box but also about the impact that sport can have on young kids and how it’s about more than just a result.

    2. Kirsty Gilmour

    This week on the podcast, we had the chance to speak with Scottish badminton player Kirsty Gilmour. Representing Scotland and Great Britain since 2008, Kirsty is a repeat medalist at both the Commonwealth games and the European Games and became an Olympian in 2016 after competing at the Rio Olympics. We speak about the value of hard work and how her hard work mentality has brought her to where she is today, but also about how she had to learn the hard way that comments on social media (both good and bad) can have a huge impact on your performance as an athlete and that it’s extremely important to work on your mental game and maintain a proportional work-life balance.
