Life in the heat chamber - George Peasegood

Published on: 11th March, 2021

Summer in Tokyo will be hot and humid and a challenge for athletes competing outdoors - especially in endurance events.

We met George Peasegood in Episode 22 and it's definitely worth listening to his inspiring story here:


And this is the latest on George's Tokyo journey. He and the squad have been in the heat chamber to try to experience what conditions will be like this summer in Japan.

George is also getting ready to compete in a virtual event next week - find out details by following him @george_peasegood
