Less than a week after the closing ceremony of the Tokyo
2020 2021 Olympics, Dr Pete and Hugh are joined, once again, by Dr Chelsi Day, Sport Psychologist at ‘The’ Ohio State University, and Dr Leah Washington, a professor of sports medicine and sport psychology, to chat about literally everything that happened at the Games. We discuss our favourite moments and yours, the twisties, the impact of the new sports, and the need for more sparkles all round… and a whole lot more too. Enjoy!

Loved the Olympic show. My idea to make the existing events more interesting would be to have ANYONE compete as opposed to professional athletes. As with jury service you’d randomly receive a letter in the post informing you that you are competing for Team GB in the boxing or the javelin etc. and you’d just have to get on with it.
