Jazz – 7 metres. Nafi – World Record. IstanBol 2023 was EPIC!!

The European Indoors never fails to deliver the drama, and sometimes it spills over into Portuguese social media spats! We re-live the chaos of Karsten’s first lap, Gourley’s gutsy silver and all the Ukrainian success at the champs.

Plus, Gabby interviews actual legend Natalya Dobrynska, as well as heptathlon gold medallist Kevin Mayer!

And it wouldn’t be the conclusion of the indoor season without some bonkers results from the NCAA’s!

Happy listening!

Episode 51: A Christmas Advent-ure (2022 Review)

What. A. Year. It was raining so much Athletics in 2022 that we had to take shelter, but we’re back for our 7th Christmas TrackCastic special!

Our festive theme to review the 2022 season involves our very own Advent Calendar!

6 Athleticos x 4 2022 Moments each = 24 doors to open.

Behind each door will be either a…
Christmas Cracker = funny moment of the year
Elf = Elffin’ Hell! Jaw-dropping shock of the year
Reindeer = Rein-deary Me! Disappointment of the year
Present = the gift Athletics gave in 2022 (Highlight of the Year)

So, grab 24 chocolates, some mulled wine and put the fire on, whilst listening to the Athletico Advent Calendar Review of 2022!

Merry Christmas!

Episode 49: We Don’t Talk About Bruno…Hortelano (Belgrade WIC Preview)

It’s Athletico Christmas Eve again!

The World Indoor Championships are back for the first time since that snowy 2018 in Birmingham.

Belgrade will hopefully deliver an epic weekend of Athletics, with 12 Tokyo Olympic champions in action.

The TrackCastic team for this preview pod is almost as small as the French team heading out to Serbia! But we’ve still got you covered, previewing all the events for these World Indoors.

Enjoy watching it all!

Episode 48: Driving Warholm For Christmas (2021 Review)

O Come All Ye Faith-ful Kipyegon’s – it’s the TrackCastic Christmas Special!

And on the 5th Day of Christmas, my true love (Berlino) gave to me – FIVE DEFINING MOMENTS!

Yes, we couldn’t afford 5 gold rings, so we’ve nabbed the idea from @ChrisBrownSport’s podcast ‘My Defining Moments’ to review the 2021 season.

Each of us chose a defining moment from the sprints, jumps, throws & distances, plus a wildcard moment.

Find out who made Carol cry the most, what made Ceri react like an Edvard Munch painting and hear Russia’s 2022 Eurovision entry!

So once you’ve Decked The Halls with boughs of Holly Bradshaw, grab yourself a mulled wine and listen to 100 minutes of 2021’s best bits.

Merry Christmas!
