“The worst thing that could've possibly happened just happened, and you're okay.” My dear friend Morolake Akinosun is BACK! In December, we shared her Jamie Ivey Show interview that originally aired on YouTube in February of 2021, but today is her official Happy Hour debut! Morolake Akinosun is a professional track runner, Olympic Gold medalist, and most recently an Emmy Award winner for her work on Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man! We chatted about where we were on March 13th, 2020 and her recent move to LA! She also opened up about training for the Tokyo Olympics and the disappointment of not getting a spot on the Olympic team. We've all had a dream that didn't happen, and it takes time to grieve the loss of that dream. But I love when she shared that while failures don't define us, neither do our successes. What a powerful reminder that our worth has never and will never come from our accomplishments.  Connect with Jamie Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // YouTube GET ALL THE LINKS FROM THE SHOW HERE See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Imagine rocketing head and face-first down a frozen track around 80 miles per hour with the rapidly moving ground just inches from your face. Well, that sport is called Skeleton and Duff Gibson won a gold medal in the 2006 Winter Olympics for being the best. Not only that, but he is the oldest gold medalist in history in the Winter Olympics, winning gold at age 39 after decades finding his niche in sport. Duff didn't start in Skeleton and spent a lot of time finding high degrees of success in winter sports, but it wasn't enough to help him realize his Olympic dream he had since childhood. Duff knew when to walk away and try new sports to help him achieve his ultimate goal- Olympic Gold. As an athlete, Duff was a provincial champion speed skater, a national champion and national team member in bobsleigh, and then a world and Olympic gold medallist in the sport of skeleton. As a coach, he led six different athletes to podium finishes at a world level. Competing against, working with, and learning from numerous world-leading athletes and coaches has provided Duff a breadth and depth of experience few others have had. Duff is passionate about the mental side of sport. He wrote the book the Tao of Sport chronicling his story along with many other high-achieving athletes and Olympians with the mental side of sport interweaved into the narrative. He regularly works with younger multi-sport athletes and is based in Calgary. "Number 1 is doing it forth the love of it. The mindset is give me the chance, give the chance and I'll show you my best as opposed to I hope I don't screw this up. So that's a mindset thing." -Duff Gibson   Key Takeaways How did he know when to switch sports Using positivity in sports What is skeleton?

The great reset or resignation, employee or life dissatisfaction, and general malaise. So many people want to make a change, try something different, but they feel it's too big of a stretch, or a dream they aren't capable of racing towards. Andre De Grasse's dream was to play professional basketball but in his final year, the program was cancelled at his high school.  On a dare from a friend, and in borrowed shoes, he signed up for a track meet.  From a standing start, as he didn't know how to use the blocks, Andre took the first steps towards racing to become the fastest man in the world and a medal winner in every Olympic competition he has entered. Not everyone will run as fast and as far as Andre De Grasse, or stand on a podium draped in Olympic Gold.  However, most can learn from how Andre goes after his dreams on and off the track, with humility, grace, will and resilience. If you are feeling stuck on your starter blocks, or just starting out, or just love a fantastic story of conquest, you will enjoy this episode. As an added value, Dr. Ryan Todd, CEO of headversity, joins the show to talk about the head and heart of a champion, and how we can all learn from their approach to life.

In this episode, Aleen and I touch on a lot of things: Including how she got into the track. Track and field wasn't something she kinda came into in her form, it was something someone close to her advised her to do, Aleen had a lot of anger inside of her and she would get into a lot of fights, but this was all because of an incident that she had to bottle up back then that she can talk about it now. We talk about her time at Barton community college, her sprint doubles at South Carolina, how she handles transition, the 2004 Olympic Games, lots of stories and memories in between, her relationship with Jamaican dancehall star Capleton and how she finds balance in her life today and so so so much more.

#262: Discovering Your Warrior Spirit with Air Force Veteran DJ Vanas

Borne the Battle

If there is anyone who knows what it means to be a warrior, it is Air Force Veteran D.J. Eagle Bear Vanas. D.J. Vanas travels around the country speaking at conventions packed with audience members, giving motivational presentations that teach people how to find their unique warrior spirit.You might be wondering, what exactly is the warrior spirit? Tribal nations, Fortune 500 companies, the military, and even the White House on two occasions have hired Vanas to answer that question. This episode of Borne the Battle offers the opportunity to hear him describe what exactly it means to embody the warrior spirit.Modern American culture often over romanticizes the warrior role and makes it out to be something unrealistic. Vanas brings the term back down to earth and emphasizes the beauty of imperfection, especially the warrior's ability to learn and grow from mistakes.Leading by example, in this episode of Borne the Battle, Vanas talks about his life's highs and lows: The life changing moment he learned of his appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy Struggling to learn how to take responsibility when starting out in the Academy Serving as the Academy's youngest Chief of Minority Enrollment Grappling with managing his military duties while also building up his speaking business Developing a network and building the momentum he needed to reach the professional height he is at today Vanas sympathizes with the challenges that many face when leaving the military. Part of embodying the warrior spirit entails being flexible and leveraging the many skills we honed while in the military to build our new tribe, and then using those skills to make our communities a better and brighter place.To learn more about the warrior spirit, PBS hosted a program featuring Vanas teaching audiences how to tap into their slumbering warrior spirit.Being a warrior does not mean facing life's struggles alone. It is okay to feel overwhelmed and it is okay to not always know the answer. We might not be bulletproof, but as Vanas argues, being a warrior means rising over and over again and to keep moving forward one step at a time.Borne the Battle Veteran of the Week:Army Veteran Dennis Wolfe.

Miss Marple is one of the classic heroines of crime fiction. Quick-witted, devilishly observant and with a keen sense of justice, Jane Marple has delighted readers since she first appeared in a series of short stories by Agatha Christie in 1927. But now, almost a century later, she is being given a new lease of life in a collection of short stories penned by twelve of today's most famous crime writers, due out next year. Queen of crime fiction Val McDermid joins Emma to talk about writing one of the stories, and why she believes an elderly spinster makes for the perfect super-sleuth. A Question of Sport is the world's longest TV sports quiz - it first appeared on our TV screens way back in 1970 and has clocked up 1,295 episodes - but it took until Friday night for Sam Quek to make history as the first ever female team captain. The 2016 Olympic Gold winning hockey player features in the new revamped BBC series alongside other team captain former rugby player Ugo Monye. While Sam joins the programme, the long running host and former tennis player Sue Barker has been replaced by the comedian and TV presenter Paddy McGuiness. Sam Quek joins Emma. The Japanese Prime Minister has announced he is standing down. His popularity was at an all time low, and because of Covid many in Japan are very unhappy that the Olympics and Paralympics were held there. The Prime Minister took over from Shinzo Abe, who introduced a policy called Womeneconomics. This was a five year plan which ended last year, and aimed to get more women into the workforce and up the career ladder. Abe vowed to make women 'shine', and set a goal for them to hold 30% percent of leadership positions by 2020. So why did this deadline quietly pass without getting close to its target? Emma speaks to Kathy Matsui, who coined the term 'Womenomics' in 1999 and to Cynthia Usui - author of the Japanese book Eight Things Full-Time Housewives Should do Before Entering the Workforce.
