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.
Put your feet up, grab your popcorn, because it’s the nearly-end of season gossip edition of Trackcastic!

Trackcastic is back with the usual fan chat, discussing some of the key results of the season thus far. We’re also coming with some brill interviews featuring our favourite athletes. On this episode:
The crew dissect the US champs and what the results may mean for Doha
Gabby gushes over a ‘Pozzi Patrol’ Meets ‘Decathletes of Europe’ mashup at the French nationals
Chris Brown brings us some great interviews from the Anniversary Games – Pozzi (the man even SOUNDS handsome), Beth Dobbin, Laviai Nielsen (“I ran my heart out, man”), Goldie Sayers and the one, the only SAFP share their stories.
We learn that Europe’s younger athletes have bags of promise and hear from the new European Under 23 Decathlon champion, Niklas Kaul, about his momentous battle with Johannes Erm.
Oh, and javelin LEGEND Andreas Thorkildsen popped in to tell us all about heptathlete Ivona Dadic’s new approach.
It’s been a while and there’s almost too much athletics action to discuss; soooo….
This episode of Trackcastic we embrace our inner Jenny Powell and spin ‘The Wheel of Athletics Fortune’ to see which random recent result gets discussed. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, we have an interview with Damian Warner captured just before his magnificent triumph in Gotzis.
