Poetry, hay fever and nasal breathing for health - Patrick Huston, Team GB Archer

Published on: 14th June, 2021

Patrick Huston is heading to Tokyo with the Archery team. This will be his second Olympic Games. Patrick has just won the British Field Archery Championships and he tells me about that side of the sport.

Patrick has just competed overseas in a World Cup event - his first major event since the European Games in Minsk in 2019. He was disappointed with the end result and articulated it in a poem. And he reads it for us and tells us how it helps overcome the setbacks.

He's had Covid, Limes Disease and of course, lockdown to contend with. in the last couple of years but is excited to return to the Olympics. He also talks about how he's trying to overcome hay fever

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.
