Board games and a lack of competition - Dai Greene

Published on: 16th February, 2021

Former World Champion hurdler Dai Greene articulates the frustration at trying to find competition just 5 months out from the Tokyo Olympics.

Covid had devastated the indoor season and Dai is disappointed that more hasn't been done to help elite athletes.

He's not competed since last July and whilst he understands that travelling around is very difficult at this time, it is a set back.

Dai's also reveals board games have been a big part of his lockdown and has some recommendations!

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.
