Podcast with our very own Olympian, Ian Richards

A podcast of an interview with Ian Richards has been posted today by a weekly sports podcast “The last Wednesday of the week”. It has been timed to coincide with the 20km walk in Tokyo tomorrow and the 50k on Friday. It covers his journey from being useless at sport at school to the Olympics, the Olympic experience and the uncanny similarities that athletes in Tokyo have experienced because of covid with those who went to the boycott games in Moscow and finishes with what has happened to me starting up again 25 years later in masters.

Highly recommended listening.
