This episode was going to be our World Indoors Preview. But the fact that the World Indoors in Nanjing has now been postponed for a year has not got in the way – we’ve done a preview anyway! We’ve got massive jumps, massive vaults, and massive hops, steps and jumps. We’ve got a reprise of David’s 2019 Random Prandini predictions, which inexplicably still involve a Random Prandini. And we have trackside interviews from the British Championships in Glasgow with everyone’s favourite domestic bam, Guy Learmonth, and Girvan’s finest Decathlete of Europe, Andrew Murphy.

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to the Trackcastic Christmas special! You’ve all been very, very good and so we have a sackful of Christmas athletico puns for you, a jolly Christmas athletics quiz, and a Secret Santa set of end of year awards. And guess who has slid down our chimney to spread his Christmas cheer…it’s only athletico favourite Dr Dan.

We are determined to gain a seat at the table and help shape the future of the sport for the better. In addition we will fight for the rights of ALL professional Track and Field athletes around the world.#WeAreTheSport
Like Bernard Lagat and the Ingebrigtsens, the Trackcastic crew demonstrate their flawless pacemaking skills to guide you through the rollercoaster that was the World Championships in Doha. David covers the distance with a bonus “spurious link” rant; Chris embraces his alter ego as Scunthorpe’s answer to Eminem and summarises the throws – especially that shot – through the medium of rap; Andre DeGrasse does a double act with Carol to tell us about his comeback and what a great guy Lovely Adam is; Ceri delights us with the jumps as we ponder whether Renaud might say au revoir in Paris 2020; and live (ish) from the Doha mixed zone Gabby brings us interviews with the new World champion Niklas Kaul, the 2019 world leader Damian Warner and… *drum roll*.. expressing himself 100% for Trackcastic, the world record holder Kevin Mayer. US heptathlete Chari Hawkins shares with us how excited she is to be there. As ever, Jamie keeps the gang in order and champions the achievements of miscellaneous Balkan states. We hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we enjoyed recording it! Plis leave us a review and 5 stars on iTunes to help others discover Trackcastic.
