Pro Enduro Bike Racer Syd Schulz explains details of her sport - a cross between downhill mountain biking and endurance. She talks about competition, social media, sponsorship, training, go pro, writing, fear, self actualization, and offers some tips on riding with others.
Speed Skater Elena Rigas from Denmark qualified for the mass start event in Pyeongchang Olympics next month. She spoke about her training, tactics of the event, awesome trainging partners, the Olympics, the difference between inline skating and racing on ice, and, of course, breakfast.
Olympic Rower, Felice Mueller, is shaking things up in the single scull this year. She just won the Lotman Challenge, a 3-race series, and took home a big check. We talk about equal prize money (it was equal in the Lotman Challenge), Title IX, disliking rowing in high school because it was hard, her strong, female role models, and training. She has amazing words about preparing for the Olympics and the value of sport.
This episode is for young athletes and for parents of athletes. Felice has obviously thought a lot about her place in sport, the value of those before her, coaches, and what she’ll take away from a career in rowing.
