Back with an Olympic medal - Shona McCallin, GB Hockey

Published on: 16th August, 2021

I'm back with a quick reflection on the Olympics before we head to a final preview of the Paralympics Games

Shona has been one of our regular contributors and she's brilliantly articulated all the doubts and concerns of the last six months or so.

She gives an inside track on what conditions were like in Tokyo and what winning a bronze medal means to the squad. You may be surprised after the Gold medal performance in Rio five years ago.

Shona talks about the emotions of the Games and gives a peek into her Tokyo diary.

Thanks for listening!

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.
