Adam Burgess and Kimberley Woods have known they were going to the Olympics since October 2019. Of course, there's been lots of uncertainty in between, but they're looking forward to making their Olympic debuts in Tokyo.
Kimberley Woods is in canoe slalom K1. Adam in the C1. I spoke to them both on an international competition day ahead of the European Championships.
Kimberley talks about the positives from the last year and how she feels so much stronger than in 2020. She can't wait to get started.
Adam is equally excited - but he talks about the mindfulness and yoga he's been doing during lockdown. He incorporates a cold shower into his day and does a handstand before competition.
Thanks to Adam and Kimberley. Here's the BBC Sport article I mentioned in the podcast https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/53789670.amp
