Emily Diamond: Reaching out to the younger generation

Alasdair Hooper and Will Moulton return to bring you episode 25 of SportSpiel.


In our first segment we discuss:

  • What have we learnt from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia? (2:34)
  • Are Wimbledon, and tennis as a whole, in need of modernisation? (22:05)

Our feature interview section on this episode is with European gold, Olympic bronze and World silver medalist Emily Diamond. (32:20)

Before the inaugural Athletics World Cup in London, Emily took time out to chat to the show all about her career in athletics.

While there have been medal successes the highs naturally come with the lows, with mental strength and striving to better yourself two of the biggest challenges the 27-year-old has faced.

As Emily keeps pushing, to be the best that she can be, she is also looking to share her experiences with the younger generation with one message shining through above all – sport should not be a punishment.
