Avoiding the covid risk with 6 weeks to go - Shona McCallin, Team GB Hockey

Published on: 11th June, 2021

Shona McCallin is a gold medal winner with GB Hockey from the Rio Olympics in 2016. Shona is a regular on the podcast and it's great that she's here on Episode 100.

The Games are now just six weeks ago and Shona talks about the final preparations and how she's approaching the final push. She's also had an injury and has been on crutches. So it's especially important for her to do the important things.

And Shona describes what steps they're taking to make sure there are no last minute issues with Covid-19

About the Podcast

Destination Tokyo
Olympic and Paralympic stories in the run up to the Tokyo Games.
I’ve covered 5 Olympic and 5 Paralympic Games at home and abroad. Tokyo 2020 was to have been numbers 6. So how are the athletes preparing during Covid times. And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
