Leaving lockdown - Shona McCallin

Published on: 23rd February, 2021

We recorded this podcast just as the Prime Minister announced the easing of lockdown in England. And for Shona McCallin that means many things, including a return to coaching her local hockey team in Maidenhead.

Shona talks about why she chose to coach whilst being on the GB squad and what she's learning.

We also talk about the run up to Tokyo and the need for acclimatisation.

If you'd like to leave me a small tip for producing these podcasts - all money I raise is going to Maggie's Cancer Centres. Here are the details and why I've chosen Maggie's.

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.
