Dan Greaves has competed and won medals at 5 Paralympic Games - with his debut in Sydney in 2000.

The delay to the Tokyo Games has helped "Discus Dan" who has recovered from a career threatening injury he picked up in 2019.

Dan's coach is in Dubai and his coaching sessions are via an ipad. He's used to it. His previous coach was based in Arizona.

We also talk about Dan's role on the Athlete's Commission and his thoughts on the new 'super shoes' which have helped some very fast times in recent weeks.

Dan's now a dad of 2 but in great shape
