    Cam Wurf: Breakfast with Bob Stay Home Edition

    A few months ago, when we launched our Breakfast with Bob: Stay Home Edition interview show, we couldn't think of a better person to help us kick it off than Cam Wurf. The guy is a walking-talking ray of sunshine. When we spoke to Cam, he was about to become a daddy for the very first time. And who else on the planet has: won Ironman Italy in 7:46:54 in September, finished 5th at the Ironman World Championship in October, raced for Australia in an ITU event in November, and been part of Team Ineos in a World Tour Pro Cycling event in February (which was his first pro cycling race in five and a half years). Cam has one of the best engines, attitudes, and personalities in all of endurance sports!

    Richard Browne Jr.

    Richard Browne's life changed forever when he was 16 years old back in 2007. He slipped and fell through a plate glass window and ended up having 13 surgeries over the next three years to try and save his leg. In 2010 he had his leg amputated below the knee and by 2012 he was at the Paralympics in London winning a silver medal at 100 meters on the track. He followed that up by breaking the 100 meter World Record in 2013 and the 200 meter World Record in 2014. His next goal? To make the US OLYMPIC team in the decathlon!

Love it!

One of my goals for my athletic life is for Mr. Babbitt to interview me! Then I know I have made it!

I love watching Breakfast with Bob during IMWC week. However if you listen to all of his interviews, you will find that he discusses the same things with the same athletes over and over. I think he needs to be more creative on asking questions because he gets stuck in things he has asked over and over. Otherwise he does have an engaging personality.
