Episode 21: They Think it’s All Clova……

Episode 21

Available on itunes

GLOSSARY:

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

PLUS

  • Gabby gives you the details of an amazing and FREE athletico quiz coming to Birmingham next SUNDAY!

See you soon,

Episode 18: Return of the Athletico Agony Aunt

Listen on itunes

Athleticos.

Rejoice. Our resident Agony Aunt, Dr. Dan O’Connor RETURNS. If ‘Agony Aunt’ was an athletic event, Dan would surely be Clova Court’s high jump. YOU ARE WELCOME.

On the show today:

  • We discuss some of the meets that wrapped up this wonderful season
  • We try (and obviously fail) to understand the Diamond League scoring system
  • Dan delves into his bulging post bag
  • And we step into our athletico time machine to predict what strange things we might see in a decade, at the L.A 2028 Olympic Games.

Also, here’s Mary Keitany at the Great North Run. Legend.
