#126 Frances Houghton MBE & Dr Chris Shambrook - Learnings From Five Olympic Games
Play • 1 hr 22 min

I’m delighted to welcome Dr Chris Shambrook back on the show. This time, Chris is joined by 5 x Olympian, 4 x World Champion and 3 x silver medallist, Frances Houghton MBE.

Frances was the first British woman to be selected for five consecutive Olympic Games in rowing, and only the fifth woman in any sport to achieve this mark for Team GB.

Chris was the team psychologist for the British rowing team from 1997 to 2019 attending 5 Olympic Games and supporting Frances for much of her career. These days Chris takes the lessons learned from Olympic Champions and applies them to help enhance corporate performance.

Frances has written the fascinating new book “Learnings From Five Olympic Games” which is the accumulation of her notes and learnings from her 21 year career. Frances, Chris and I discuss the book in detail and break down the processes Frances utilised to compete at the very highest level.

Blood flow restriction (BFR) training; more than just a rehabilitation tool with Chris Gaviglio (Senior S&C Coach at the Queensland Academy of Sport)

With more BFR devices on the market and its application spanning wider than just an arm pump and rehabilitation, I thought it was time to get an expert on, and Chris is definitely that.

Ep 254 - Laz Lake on Big's Backyard Ultra and virtual races
Laz is back and this time he's talking Big's Backyard and virtual races... something we didn't think we'd be speaking with Laz about a year ago! It's been a while since Jody and David spoke to Laz (aka Gary Cantrell) about the Barkley Marathons (if you've not listened, we suggest going back and listening to this first) and since then we'd had the National Running Show where Laz was star of the show and a global pandemic. As a result, Laz's usual roster of races hasn't gone ahead... but that has helped explode the popularity of the Big's Backyard race format and another huge virtual race run by Laz - The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee. Jody and David discuss these with Laz. Laz also gives his view on the controversy surrounding the banning of BLM and political posts in the Facebook group. Oh, and a bit of a disclaimer - there was a bad lag which made it difficult for the conversation to flow as freely as intended. Enjoy!
