Special guest Luke Mathews
In Episode 1 of our new podcast series, our host and TEMPO editor Riley Wolff gives some insight on Gen Gregson’s record breaking run at The Tan, including how it all came together and how it went down on the day. You can read the editorial about that time trial here.
Our special guest this week is Luke Mathews - Riley chats with the 800m & 1500m star about the highs and lows of his career so far, what it’s like to sign a professional contract, and also how his training is impacted by current coronavirus restrictions. Luke suggests he’s ‘Employee #1’ at TEMPO, after he was the first person ever featured on the site and now the first athlete to be on the podcast.
We also speak to athletics superfan Sean Whipp about the postponement of the 2020 Olympics, the implications for Japan, and which athletes benefit from the decision.
