The Commonwealth Games track and field program begins today. On the show today, our crew represents Northern Ireland (Carol), Scotland (Gabby), Wales (Ceri), England (Chris) and everyone else (Jamie) to put forward their case for the best Commonwealth Country in Track and Field?
In addition, we put forward some new anthem, hashtag and mascot ideas.
Who will come out on top? You decide!!
P.S Some of our all time fave highlights:
Scotland (Yvonne Murray beats Elana Meyer in 1994)
N. Ireland (Mary Peters CWG Memories)
Wales (Matt Elias anchors Wales to an exceptional silver in 2002)
England (Denise Lewis 1994)
Other: Australia (Cathy Freeman, 1994)
On today’s Trackcastic
- We re-live the fantastic world indoor championship held in Birmingham
- We chronicle Gabby’s epic journey to reach the stadium
- and offer a sincere apology to Mujinga (and her sports hall)
- If you missed the great athletico quiz, you can see how you would have fared as Gabby poses some of the most popular questions to Jamie and Carol
As it’s Easter, you may find a little ‘Easter egg’ at the end of the show. Major kudos to the #athleticos who can identify the athlete we are gushing over

CLOVA: Something that is both memorable and indicative of future performances. The term “ALL Clova” comes from the incredible heptathlete Clova Court. Clova’s High Jump performances will be remembered forever. Her 1’40 averages indicated that despite having 6 other strong events, she would never capture a medal. But alas, she captured out hearts instead.
With less than a week until WiCH(!!!!!), we catch you up on the (MENTAL) performances to date.
- We test how many of these performances we’ll still remember come the summer with our fantastic game show: THEY THINK IT’S ALL CLOVA……
Up for discussion are:
- Christian Coleman’s World Record
- Swiss ‘leisure centre’ records
- Hurdles (petty) drama on & off the track
- Gabby gives you the details of an amazing and FREE athletico quiz coming to Birmingham next SUNDAY!
See you soon,
London was the scene for the magnificent 2017 World Champs, so it is only fitting that it also provide the backdrop for Trackcastic’s Christmas Special: an athletico version of “A Christmas Carol”. Cry “What the Fezziwig?!” as the ghosts of Rosa Mota, Concertina Dita and Said Aouita take you on a tour of the highlights of 2017, and enjoy Scrooge’s distribution of the 2017 Trackcastic Awards.
We hope our listeners have a wonderful Christmas and New Years.
Plis accept our best wishes
