Back on the track after 18 months - Martyn Rooney

Published on: 6th May, 2021

He's one of the senior members of the GB Athletics squad but he wants to be there with a shot of being part of one of the Olympics new events.

Martyn Rooney is part of the 4x400m squad - and there'll be extra medals to win this summer with a mens and a mixed event.

Martyn took 2020 off and feels he's refreshed as he prepares for his first event of the season. He talks about his training method, an injury setback and his venture as a podcast host.

You can hear Martyn with Paralympian Dan Greaves in That Greaves and Rooney Sports Podcast -

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.
