What a Championships – what could top that?

Eliud Kipchoge: Hold my Maurten.

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.
