Episode 47: Athletico Christmas Eve (Tokyo Olympic Preview)

Happy Athletico Christmas Eve!! Happy 5th Birthday to us!!

It’s a double celebration in this bumper special episode of TrackCastic and the whole gang are here to share the excitement.

5 years ago TrackCastic was born! We began with a preview to the Rio 2016 Olympic Athletics, so it’s only right we celebrate our birthday by doing the same!

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are finally here! It’s a year late, but it’s actually happening!

We have a new format to preview every event on the schedule. So, sit back, relax and enjoy listening to all the wildly inaccurate predictions!

PS – Sorry it’s so long.

Episode 46: An Offal Situation (GB Trials Preview)

We’re back!

It’s the kids in charge again, with Gabby enjoying life as a commentator & Jamie otherwise engaged (in the pub).

The rest of the TrackCastic crew are here to discuss all the action from the outdoor season so far, the off-track gossip & to preview the GB Olympic trials!

Dave has been all across the distance drama.
Carol has kept her eye on the rising GB stars.
Chris has been preparing for a trip to the Trials.
And as always, Ceri has the gossip on pretty much everything else!

So settle in for a long one – Sifan Hassan’s 10,000m World Record only just lasted longer than this episode!

Enjoy!

Episode 45: In Bed With Óscar Husillos (Toruń Review)

Ah wasn’t it amazing? Four wonderful days of European Indoor Athletics. Toruń 2021 was everything we wanted it to be and more!

With Jamie away negotiating prices for green lycra, the rest of the TrackCastic crew are here to guide you through every medal won in Toruń. We gave you a comprehensive preview, so it was only fair to do the same for the review!

So snuggle up next to Óscar and his shiny gold medal, and listen to…

  • Dave’s plasticine revelation
  • The correct way to say Iapichino and Ehammer
  • Gabby’s gossip from the virtual mixed zone
  • THAT Women’s 1500m final (lol)
  • And discover why half of Chris’s face is itching

Even though this is a Track and Field podcast, for this episode, it’s a Field and Track pod. The first half is field events, the second half all the track. Split it in half if you need to!

Now, let’s take that hotel bed selfie…

So sit back, relax and listen to…

  • News Roundup – Coaching/Doping/Retirement gossip
  • Dissecting the 5x World Records we’ve seen so far in 2021!
  • A review of the World Indoor Tour
