Episode 11: Reece Prescod

Alasdair Hooper and Will Moulton bring you episode 11 of SportSpiel, a podcast full of sporting discussion and feature interviews.

British Athletics World Championships Team Trials - Day One

In our first segment we discuss:

  • Why is Chris Froome not revered and hailed in the same way as other British stars?
  • Should Russia be banned from the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics?

Our feature interview segment in this episode is with British sprinter Reece Prescod who shot into the public eye with his seventh-placed finish in the 100m at the London 2017 World Championships. At just 21 years of age he has been nominated for the European Athletics male rising star award but it could have been so different.

Reece tells us about his career, racing against Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin in that 100m final, why he credits the ‘dark times’ for where he is now and why he could so easily be an estate agent instead.
