Ever wondered what it is like to train for 3 sports in one day? In Episode #6 we sit down with Sophie Coldwell & Olivia Mathias, two of Great Britain’s top triathletes respectively.

We cover topics from their experiences at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018, the lessons they learned and their favourite memories from the competition down under. As a multi-sport competition, the Commonwealth Games is known as one of the most fun to compete as an athlete, with high-level competition and infamous after-parties. Not to mention one being held in Australia.

Additionally, Sophie and Olivia open up about the highs and lows of their experiences during the lockdown in the summer, how their training was impacted and how the triathlon competition season was ruined. Did the interruption of COVID-19 mean they got away with not doing the standard long (sometimes ~5 hours!?) rides? NO CHANCE!

If you want to get to know how they do it, what they get up to outside of sport, along with some advice they would give to their younger selves and much more… then check out the episode on all top streaming platforms!
