McLain Ward is a three-time Olympic medalist. He joined the podcast from Germany where he was training for the Tokyo Olympics with his horse, Contagious. Ward is a longtime friend of Seth's, and the episode focuses on the struggle of dealing with the postponement of the Olympics last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He also discussed the massive operation to get the horses ready to travel across the world. Plus, he discussed the makeup of the equestrian and his teammates Laura Kraut, Kent Farrington, and newcomer Jessica Springsteen, who is the daughter of Bruce Springsteen.
This conversation dove deep into the Olympic spirit, and the idea that for so many competitors, the opportunity is so fleeting. Ward also humbly discussed his legacy as one of his sports greatest champions.
