Olympian and Doctor Sophia Papamichalopoulos joins Chinny and Emmett to discuss what it’s like to pursue sports as a career and achieve the ultimate goal of representing your nation at the Olympics, and what it’s like after you’ve reached that pinnacle. In this joyous episode we also learn about the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, its sporting culture, and how after reaching her first dream to represent Cyprus at the Olympics, Sophia’s new dream is to unite the nation through sport… Just like PeacePlayers!
