Alasdair Hooper and Will Moulton bring you episode 13 of SportSpiel, a podcast full of sporting discussion and feature interviews.
In our first segment we discuss:
- Will Qatar be stripped of the 2022 FIFA World Cup (2:16)?
- Are we obsessed with medal table success after British Swimming had to apologise for the creation of a ‘climate of fear’ amongst Paralympic athletes (11:57)?
Our feature interview segment in this episode is with Jack Rutter – the captain of the England cerebral palsy football team (18:38).
As a promising youth player at Birmingham City the defender’s professional career was taken away from him as an 18-year-old on one fateful night. He talks about the impact it had on his life and the way he bounced back proudly in the face of adversity.
