Alasdair Hooper and Will Moulton bring you episode 17 of SportSpiel, a podcast full of sporting discussion and feature interviews.
In our first segment we discuss:
- Our best, worst, funniest, most memorable, game-changing and most inspirational moments of 2017 (2:32)
- Our outstanding display of the week award (25:45)
- Our feel good story of the week award (27:33)
Our feature interview segment in this episode is with British steeplechaser Rosie Clarke (29:39).
Rosie discusses her unusual path into the sport and the rapid progress she has made since switching to the steeplechase just 18 months ago. She also tells us what it takes to become an elite athlete – particularly in terms of dietary requirements – as well as whether genetics have a part to play in competitive success.
