Mental struggles and a hat-trick hero - Adam Gemili and Ellen White

Published on: 26th February, 2021

She scored a hat-trick for England in midweek - Ellen White talks about playing international football again. Covid has meant no England games for a year - but Ellen has a big smile on her face this week. And a souvenir ball for her trophy cabinet.

Ellen speaks about the Olympic preparations - and what she's doing to earn selection.

Ellen also co presents the Track and Ball podcast with Paralympian Richard Whitehead and she talks about their latest guest - Team GB sprinter Adam Gemili....who talks about his early career playing football, mixing it with Usain Bolt, London 2012 and how he hit a low point in 2020 after the Tokyo Games were postponed.

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.
