Triathlon Gold - The female Gold medalists from the past 4 Olympic Games! Emma Frodeno, Nicola Spirig, Gwen Jorgensen, and Flora Duffy

October 18, 2021
This is a treat and such a privilege to have Emma Frodeno (formerly Snowsill), Nicola Spirig, Gwen Jorgensen, and Flora Duffy. . It’s taken several months... but we are finally here. I’m so excited about this episode.
 
You see, I’ve always wondered what it takes to win on that special day, that one day that every Olympic athlete aspires to. I’ve wondered what it must feel like crossing that finish line knowing that you are the Olympic champion, and how does that heavy medal affect the rest of your life?
 
Well, today we’ll get some answers to those questions... today I have the past four-woman Olympic Triathlon gold medalists on the show. Four Gold and one Silver between the four of them.
 
These are women that I have trained and been at races with. They have all conquered the world and have been heroes to their respective countries. All of them I truly admire and would call good friends.
 
All but one have been on the show and you can find their past episodes on your podcast app of choice.
 
But never have they all been together on the one show. I’m feeling very honored that they have all agreed to come on, and amazed that we were able to coordinate times from all corners of the world.
 
In this episode, they all discuss their mindset 2 weeks leading into the Games and how it changed leading into the race. When did they feel like they had it won. And, What was the first initial feeling you felt crossing the line, and finally How did the Gold medal affect each of their lives.
 
Truly incredible to have them all on the one show... I can't thank them enough for making this happen.

October 11, 2021
Sam Appleton joins me in the studio. Sam is one of the most successful middle-distance triathletes on the planet.
 
Winning a multitude of the biggest IM 70.3s in the world, placing 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 9th at the IM 70.3 World Championships. To me, it feels like his time to crack the podium and take the win will be soon.
 
If the World Championships were in the Napa Valley wine region of California this man would have plenty of hardware... he’s won, the Vineman now Santa Rosa 70.3 four times from five starts.
 
He’s currently ranked 12th on the World Rankings with enormous potential to leap up to the top.
 
It’s a pleasure to have one of the best men I know in the studio.
 
In this episode, Sam is an open book. He shares the ups and downs of being a professional athlete with absolute honesty and vulnerability. We have some fun with the rapid-fire questions and Sam describes his intent for the 2022 season.
 
I personally thoroughly enjoyed this conversation.

Dan Lorang, Coach to Jan Frodeno, Lucy Charles-Barclay, Anne Haug & the Bora Hansgrohe Cycling Team

September 27, 2021

Dan Lorang joins me once again on the show. Dan is one of the greatest endurance coaches on the planet.

He was last on the show in episode 31, last August. That episode was one of the most downloaded episodes in 2020 and is still in the top ten most downloaded to date. If you haven’t listened to that one yet, I encourage you to do to so.

Since then, his athletes have continued to excel and dominate. Notably, Jan Frodeno and his Ironman World Record, Anne Haug and her mind-boggling victory at Challenge Roth, Lucy Charles Barclay, and her recent Ironman 70.3 World title, and all his cyclists in the Bora Hansgrohe cycling team.

What an absolute honor and privilege it is to have one of the greatest minds in the world of endurance sport join me for a chat.

In this episode, Dan is incredibly forthcoming with sharing his wisdom and his knowledge.

Dan gives a quick recap of his journey of how he got to where he is, and then we discuss his athlete's performances in 2021 and get a little more specific on his coaching methodology. There is so much in this episode. Truly outstanding.

Six-time Ironman World Champion‘s, Mr. Dave Scott & Mr. Mark Allen - PTO, Collins Cup, Kona Ironman

Six-time Ironman World Champion‘s, Mr. Dave Scott & Mr. Mark Allen - PTO, Collins Cup, Kona Ironman

September 13, 2021
These days in the sport of Triathlon we love to throw around names like Jan Frodeno, Alistair Brownlee, Javier Gomez as being the greatest of all time, and obviously, they’re all in the conversation.
 
But, when I rewind the clock there are other names that we need to start throwing into that discussion, Simon Lessing, Scott Molina, Greg Welch, Brad Bevan, Mike Pigg.... and the list goes on.
 
And then there are two that I look at, that influenced my desire to become a professional Triathlete more than anyone else. And I believe, They have impacted the sport as a whole more than anyone else. They have been on this show separately in episodes 5 and 7. But today I’m joined with both of them on the show together.
 
What a privilege it is to have Dave Scott sit with me in the studio and Mark Allen call in.
 
We discuss the Collins Cup from the past week, Ironman Kona – or lack thereof, the sport of Triathlon as a whole, and well, anything and everything. We end with some fun rapid-fire questions.

Emma Pallant-Browne - Ironman 70,3 Champion, Multiple Duathlon World Champion & Ironman 70.3 World Champion medalist

August 30, 2021

I’m joined in studio by one of the greatest prospects to hit the world of Triathlon, Emma Pallant-Browne.

She was an exceptional runner, she just missed the Great Britain Olympic team for the 1500m & 5km at both Beijing and London Olympics.

In her short time as a professional Triathlete, she has finished 2nd at the Ironman 70.3 World Champions, won two Duathlon World titles, and won 17 Ironman 70.3’s. She has developed her swim and bike to the point she has no weaknesses. And she continues to improve. Her momentum is building.

I have zero doubt, I am speaking with the next great champion of the sport of Triathlon.

I’m honored that she would take time out of her busy schedule to sit and chat with me.

In this episode, Emma describes her journey into the sport of Triathlon from running and how she loves to train hard but loves to race even more. She discusses the importance of her team, specifically her husband Jaryd, and coach Tim Don.

We discuss Sleep and recovery, training, mental strategies and so much more in this one.

We finish with some fast questions at the end of the show... don't miss these... inspiring, fun, and very entertaining.

Flora Duffy - Tokyo Olympic Games Champion, Commonwealth Games Champion, 9 Time World Champion

Flora Duffy - Tokyo Olympic Games Champion, Commonwealth Games Champion, 9 Time World Champion

August 16, 2021
If you’ve listened to this show, you would have heard me say in the Introduction to each episode – "Success comes to those who endure just one moment longer."
 
Well, Today’s guest is the epitome of that quote. She has been steadily improving her craft for two decades. Building upon each day, month, and year to reach the very top of the sport – To become the Olympic Champion.
 
She’s one of the most decorated Triathletes in history:
Now with Olympic Gold in Tokyo, Japan
Commonwealth Gold on the Gold Coast, Australia
And 9 World Titles including:
Two ITU Triathlon World Championships
Two ITU Cross World Championships
And Five Xterra Triathlon World Championships
 
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing, she’s had setbacks and had to rebuild numerous times, but she keeps getting back up and rebuilding stronger.
 
She’s been a friend of ours for over 10 years and she’s one of the most down-to-earth champions you could ever spend time with.
 
She is the first gold medalist for her country of Bermuda.
 
In this episode, Flora describes what it took to win Gold in Tokyo, the journey to get there, her team, the good times and the bad, and the race itself.
 
This episode had a little bit of everything... the emotional joy of winning gold, plus the heartache and the delusion that comes with professional sport, and plenty of laughs.
 
You will leave this episode becoming an even bigger fan of one of the all-time greats of the sport of Triathlon.
