Release Date: February 7, 2019

Category: Athletes | Diving | Podcast

We have a legend in the house this week! It’s part one of our interview with Sydney 2000 gold medalist Laura Wilkinson. In this episode Laura explains how the sport works — and something unusual that a lot of divers have in common.

Follow Laura:

She also has her own inspirational podcast called Hope Sports where she interviews athletes about their journeys on and off the field, their successes and their struggles. We highly recommend it!

We also talked about that epic moment from the Seoul 1988 diving competition, when Greg Louganis smacked his head on the board–and still won the gold.

Plus some Tokyo 2020 mascot updates and a little slice of TOFU!

Don’t forget to support the show–it all helps to bring you a better podcast and more features leading up to Tokyo 2020!
