Aussie Olympic Gold Medal winner and World Champion swimmer Bronte Campbell visits The Recombobulator Lab in person by walking down the street to Jason’s home. Chris starts them off by asking Bronte about her Malawi roots, and she takes the two through a tale of Hippos and crocodiles.
Bronte talks about the challenge of training for the Tokyo Olympics after the delay from the pandemic. Chris talks about the different orientations people can have toward competitiveness, and Bronte explains just how competitive the field is. Chris curiously asks about the mysterious timing plate in the pool, and Jason inquires as to how Bronte gets ahead. Bronte takes the two through how she performs better by letting go of control and staying creative.
Then the three talk about the similarities and differences between the Olympics and the World Championships and then drift into the cultural differences speaking to the media in Australia and the US when you are an athlete. Bronte finishes the discussion by debunking a myth.
