In December 2018, Patricio Manuel stepped into a boxing ring at a California casino for his first professional fight. He won in a decision. He also made a piece of sports history. The former amateur champion and Olympic Trials hopeful became the first transgender man to card a professional boxing win. The win was the end of a long road back to the ring, two years after he stepped away from something he loves to heal someone he loves -- himself. Throughout 2022, we've been fortunate to beam up trans titans in sport, and this week Karleigh Webb sits down with another one, and Manuel says he's far from done. He hasn't stopped training. He hasn't stopped preparing for next chance. He talks about the elation, the frustration, the pride, the hope, and about a special pair of gloves that carried him from dream to dream, and how those gloves will be a part of a special volume of a tome of transgender history.

She did admit that while her backstroke has become arguably her strongest stroke outside of freestyle, her true love is butterfly and she doesn't even really like backstroke. Her success in Indianapolis raised the question of if she still plans to start at Florida in the fall of 2023, where she has committed. Sims reveals she is currently unsure of her plans moving forward, indicating that she may take a gap year to stay with Ron Aitken and Sandpipers in the lead-up to the 2024 Olympic Trials.

Justin Spring went from tumbling around his neighborhood to later winning NCAA gymnastics titles and eventually earning a place on the 2008 Olympic team.  The road getting there had its share of twists and turns (pun intended), including a slew of injuries leading up to the Olympics.  Justin shares behind-the-scenes stories of his journey, from the lowest moment in his gymnastics career (when he had to army-crawl to his coach's room due to excruciating pain); to the mental techniques he relied on to get his body back into shape; to what life was really like in the Olympic Village.  Justin is now a college gymnastics coach (formerly for the University of Illinois men; now for the University of Alabama women).  We learn about pressure, expectations, why men's gymnastics is losing popularity (and college teams) in the U.S., and why competing for "perfect 10s" makes women's gymnastics much more entertaining. In this episode:Why gymnastics is such a difficult sport (05:47)How gymnastics suited Justin's personality (08:20)Thoughts about pursuing the Olympics and gold medals (09:26)Justin's many injuries (15:06)The importance of mental training in recovery (15:58)His journey through injuries to the Olympic Trials (19:30)The darkest moment of Justin's career (21:32)The underdog story at the 2008 Olympics (25:07)What the Olympic experience was like (31:06)The state of men's gymnastics in the US (34:04)What's happening in collegiate sports (36:05)Thoughts on coaching (41:42)Want to know more about Justin?Follow him on Instagram: springerzzFind him on Twitter: @justinspring Want to know more about the podcast What It's Like To... ?Sign up to be on our Insiders' List to receive our newsletters and insiders' information!

Maggie is now a fierce advocate for gun restrictions and has been open to sharing her story in the news about the tragedy she was apart of. Maggie also qualified for the 2021 Olympic Trials in the 10,000m but sadly had to miss the race due to injury. Maggie overcame her challenging 2021 with a top 10 finish at the Chicago Marathon placing 8th in 2.28:07.

However, she was not idle during her time-off. Hali's been building a career selling real estate.

He's also a Nike-sponsored athlete who, in 2015, became the first known transgender man to represent the U.S. in international competition. Beyond all of that, however, Chris is an incredible person who knows himself better than nearly anyone I've ever met and he's an advocate, inspiration, mentor, and a role model to so many, myself included. In this wide-ranging conversation, Chris and I talked about his relationship to sport and how that's evolved throughout his life. We discussed identity and how he shows up in the different communities that he belongs to, as well as why he doesn't want to be seen in any one particular type of way. Chris told me about navigating the world now as a white male and how that perspective differs from what he experienced earlier in his life, how we can all be allies and advocates for equal rights in sports and society, and so, so much more.

On today's episode, Laura's talking about one of the things she gets asked about most frequently: visualization. Laura credits this technique as a big part of why she was able to make the Olympic team and win gold when no one else expected her to. Having seen other athletes succeed with this approach, she adopted it as a way to continue training after shattering her foot three months before the Olympic Trials, making an opportunity out of that forced sidelining. Visualization has remained part of Laura's personal toolset, and she uses that experience in this episode to explain what the technique is and walk us through how to get started visualizing in a way that will actually make a difference. Visualization is defined as purposely rehearsing a skill, routine, or performance in your mind to program your body physically for success. Practicing it consistently becomes a fortifying competition strategy, rewiring your brain to prepare it to deal with all the different factors that come into play while competing. Laura explains that there are a few different ways to visualize, including first and third-person versions, which contribute different effects and should be used in conjunction with each other. She also points out the importance of engaging all your senses while visualizing to better immerse your brain and make changes more easily. Laura then shares some how-to basics for those wishing to start visualizing, from giving yourself a set amount of time to practice, to making sure you have a quiet place to visualize in, and starting with the approach that comes most naturally to you. And finally, Laura finishes the episode with some tips and tricks for beginners, including practicing frequently and consistently, mixing things up every day, and using video study to enhance your visualization. Episode Highlights: Laura's personal experience with visualization What visualization is Types and elements of visualization How-to visualizing basics Tips and tricks for getting started with visualization Quotes: “When I burst onto the scene winning an unexpected Olympic victory—well, unexpected to everyone else—the story that was being told was centered around me having shattered my foot before the Olympic trials and being unable to physically train. So I visualized, and that not only helped me make the Olympic team, but I consider it a big part of the reason that I was able to stand atop the podium and listen to my national anthem play.” “The more senses that you engage, the more your mind starts to believe that you're really doing the activity. You're actively rewiring your brain on how to fire and react when you're doing specific movements and techniques. So the more real it is to you, the more real it is to your brain, and the more effective changes you can actually make.” “People say practice makes perfect, but really, practice makes permanent. So if you're practicing or thinking about or visualizing the wrong actions, that's what you are making into concrete in your brain. So you really want to make sure, as you're visualizing, that you take the time to think about doing all the things, all the tiny, little details, correct because that's what you are programming in your brain.” “These visualizations of the competition scenarios, it just allows you to put yourself in so many different situations that maybe you don't have the actual time to be going out and doing the thirty different competitions against the same people to see how you would stack up in different scenarios. But you can do that in your mind.” “Make sure that you're keeping this positive. This is not a place to beat yourself up or to get frustrated. This is a place to learn, to experiment, and to see yourself doing all these awesome and amazing things that you've dreamed of doing.” Pursuit of Gold Podcast is brought to you by Kaatsu Global Links: The Pursuit of Gold 1-on-1 Coaching with Laura The Confidence Journal Life at 10 Meters: Lessons from an Olympic Champion Laura's Social Media: Laura's Instagram Laura's Facebook

One of her more recent accomplishments though has been off the run in becoming a mom. One of the refreshing things you will notice in speaking with Caitlyn about running and everything surrounding the sport is how driven by curiosity she is. During this conversation we covered Caitlyn's running beginnings as a "middle schooler" in Hawaii; how she gave up running while teaching in Japan to explore what her identity would be like without it; how she returned to running during Peace Corps in Zambia and ran an unofficial ultra marathon just to see if her body could go that far; her buying a one way plane ticket to DC and signing up for her first official ultra at the same time; her journey with the marathon and deciding to go for the Olympic Trials qualifying time at Grandma's Marathon (the same race at which Keira D'Amato qualified for the trials); and how here relationship with running changed and remained the same in different aspects throughout pregnancy and new motherhood. We both agree that DC is a wonderful running city when it comes to both places to run and people in the running community. Caitlyn shouts out Track Pack specifically.  We talk advice for setting big marathon goals - Caitlyn says even if it is a "bad day" (think rainy, windy weather) you might surprise yourself and have a good day!

This week I had the pleasure to speak with Timothy Tays, also known as Timmy 2 Mile. He is the author of Wannabe Distance God: The Thirst, Angst, and Passion of Running in the Chase Pack. He graduated and ran for Eldorado High School and the University of Kansas. Timothy has a great story and details that story in his book. In it, he talks about trying to be the best he could be in order to fill a need to fit in, to show he was someone. It is a universal feeling.  We talk about the book and around the book. Since he answers so many of the questions of his story, I didn't want to give too much away. But I really enjoyed our talk. He talks about getting into running. We touch on Chuck Aragon's Olympic Trials, talent factors, and running marathons when water stations were still almost optional. Timothy was a talented and hard working runner that gave his all to be one of the best in the country. There are plenty of people that would have loved to make it as far as he did, but as he says, it's all about perspective. One thing I learned was that there's always someone faster, another milestone you want to reach, but there's something to enjoying where you are at and enjoying the moment. Here's an Amazon link to purchase the book (here), but look it up if you prefer to support other stores. It's nice to have cooler weather to run in and that the major marathons are rolling around. Good luck to all of the runners (New Mexicans especially) that are competing at the Chicago Marathon this morning. Enjoy your runs, dress in layers, continue to hydrate, and keep running, New Mexico.

Andy Kershaw is entering his ninth year at the helm of the Miami Hurricanes swimming program in 2021-2022. The Hurricanes have ascended towards the top of the Atlantic Coast Conference since Kershaw's arrival to Coral Gables in 2013. As the head manager of the USA Swimming team for the past two Olympic Games (2012, 2016), Kershaw has provided Miami swimming with a wealth of domestic and international swimming experience. In 2016-17, Kershaw coached an Olympian, a World Short Course Championships qualifier, a World University Games qualifier, an NCAA Championships qualifier and led seven different swimmers to a total of 13 NCAA consideration cuts. In an impressive year for Hurricanes swimmers, Heather Arseth represented Mauritius at the 2016 Olympics, Roxanne Yu qualified for the World Short Course Championships as a Phillipine international, and Manon Viguier clinched a trip to the World University Games, where she will represent France. Two swimmers – seniors Angela Algee and Christina Leander – represented Miami at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials, and Algee qualified for her second NCAA Championships under his guidance. Algee finished 38th in the 100 fly, 52nd in the 200 fly and 53rd in the 50 free nationally. Outside the lanes, Kershaw has placed a heavy emphasis on academics; the Miami swimming team's combined GPA of 3.5 in 2016-17 was the highest of any women's team on campus. The Hurricanes earned NCAA Academic honors in the fall and spring semester, three swimmers earned NCAA Academic All-America recognition, and the Hurricanes swimming program compiled the second-most community service hours of any program in the country. Miami posted seven dual meet wins in 2015-16 – its highest win total in five seasons – with a team that featured an NCAA Swimming Championships qualifier (Algee) and two U.S. Olympic trialists. Miami's win total increased in each of his first three years. As head manager of Team USA at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the American swimming contingent hauled in a world-leading 33 medals, including 16 golds. Kershaw joined the Hurricanes in the summer of 2013 after spending the previous 10 years with Southern Methodist University. After seven years as an assistant coach, Kershaw served as associate head coach and recruiting coordinator for his final three seasons with the Mustangs. Kershaw has been a force for U.S. Swimming as head manager. In addition to serving in the role at the 2016 Olympics (Rio), he has been head manager for the 2015 World Championships (Kazan, Russia), 2012 Summer Olympics (London), the 2011 World Championships (Shanghai), the 2010 Pan Pacific Games (Irvine, Calif.) and the 2009 Duel in the Pool (Manchester, U.K.). Prior to his time with U.S. Swimming, he served as an assistant coach for the Slovenian national swimming team from 2004-06. “I think he is an incredible person,” said Teri McKeever, who served as head coach of the U.S. women's swimming team for the London Olympics. “He is very people-oriented, a great communicator, proactive and very driven. Andy is committed to the sport and to developing young people.” During his time at SMU, Kershaw coached 79 NCAA All-Americans and helped the Mustangs finish in the top 25 in the country six times. The Mustangs had six Conference USA Swimmers of the Year and 35 NCAA Academic All-Americans under his watch. In 2012, Kershaw was recognized as Honorable Mention NCAA Assistant Coach of the Year bycollegeswimming.com.Kershaw's coaching career began as a student assistant for the men's and women's team at Ohio and continued in that role until 1998, when he became the graduate assistant for the 1998-1999 seasons. In 1999 he was hired as the head assistant coach for both programs, a role he served until 2003. As the assistant, he was primarily responsible for the distance group and oversaw the organization of the recruiting efforts. During his four years as the assistant, Kershaw helped lead the women's team to back-to-back Mid-American Team Championships, while guiding two Ohio swimmers to NCAA All-America performances. A native of Mansfield, Ohio, Kershaw earned a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in athletic administration from Ohio University. Kershaw and his wife Elizabeth have one daughter, Emma.

This week's guest is Isaac Updike of Nike and Empire Elite. Isaac is an accomplished steeplechaser who made it to the finals in the last two Olympic Trials, most recently finishing 5th in Eugene in 2021. With a personal best of 8:17 in the steeple and 3:58 in the mile, he's one of the speediest runners to ever come out of his native Alaska. Isaac had a rough 2022 marked by two bouts of COVID that derailed his track season, but he came on the show with a great attitude and perspective about his place in the sport, his remarkable longevity as a pro, and his goals moving forward. We had a great conversation about all the ins and outs of the steeplechase and hurdling, as well as covering his relationship with his coaches and athletes, why he proudly wears the blue-collar runner label, and what it felt like to finally earn an individual pro contract at last year's Trials. This episode of Run Your Mouth is presented by Nike. We've partnered with them to help share athletes' stories in a way that reflects the different reasons we all choose to run, work out, and find our part of the track and field community. In my conversations with athletes in all events and all levels over the years, one common theme I hear over and over again is that finding the unique ways running brings you joy is the best way to develop a happy lifelong relationship with the sport. Come run with Nike. For the everyday and common runner Nike is committed to motivating, standing by, listening to, and helping them from the starting line to the finish line and every inch, meter and mile in between. Whether it's a local race, a major marathon, or just a run with friends, get out there and run. Just do it. Check out the Nike Run Club app and come run with us. On training with Empire Elite: “My coaches are super receptive and collaborative with their athletes. They have a deep knowledge and you want to listen to them, but they aren't going to supersede your opinion and what you think is best for yourself.” On scratching from USAs: “It's a point of pride – to go out there and try to represent your country and show all the work you've done. But there comes a point where competing is counterproductive and that was the decision we had to make.” On finding longevity as a pro runner: “The faster you get, the harder it is to get faster. At a certain point, you have to stack months and years together to have a single breakthrough. But the secret is pretty simple: we haven't been overtrained and we enjoy it still.”

From the Minnesota-special intro to the bonus material at the end of the podcast, we've got it all for you this week. Joining the show is pro track-turned-trail runner Garrett Heath. The Winona, MN product not only pulled off the DOUBLE triple crown — back-to-back 1600, 3200, and xc titles (kiddos, this was back before the MSHSL softened everything and made three classes, too) — he added two Nordic ski titles as well (which is, in case you were wondering, as many titles as Zak Ketterson won). The 9x Stanford All-American has had a legendary career, and it's still going. After competing in the 5,000-meters at the U.S. Olympic Trials in 2021, Heath made the move to the pro trail scene. On this show, we talk about his upbringing, a little Nordic nonsense, what caused the shift to the trails, what's surprised him, and how it's changed his training. We also....and we know this is what you really care about ...discuss the epic Elliott Heath Birkie Mystery. Heath is ending his season this Saturday on the Birkie trails for the USATF Half Marathon Trail Champs. On the show, we discuss who figures to be his biggest competition, and it's probably not who you — or maybe even he — was thinking. Stick around for a BONUS 75-seconds of show that we are opening up for free to everyone, just this once. Next time, it will require a $99.99/week subscription.

"It shows, in the past two years, how much we've both improved because we've had each other to push each other the whole way." Meet Roisin Willis and Juliette Whittaker: the fastest high schoolers in American history. Not only have Roisin and Juliette spent their respective senior years breaking records and taking home world championships medals, but they've formed a very special long-distance friendship along the way — though it won't be long-distance for much longer. Both Roisin (from Stevens Point, WI) and Juliette (from Laurel, MD) are headed to Stanford University this fall. In this conversation, we get to know the 800m runners whose running resumes are already extensive. They both competed at the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team Trials last summer, as high school juniors. In April, Roisin was part of the distance medley relay world record-breaking team alongside Olympians Elle Purrier St. Pierre, Heather MacLean, and Kendall Ellis. In May, Juliette won the 800m race at Trials of Miles Track Night NYC, not only breaking the tape, but breaking 2:00 for the first time. Weeks later, she broke the 800m high school national record at USATF U20 Outdoor Championships. To cap off an exciting year and a very long track season, Roisin and Juliette got to represent Team USA at World Athletics U20 Championships in Cali, Colombia, where they both competed in the 800 — and became world gold and bronze medalists, respectively, in the process. Now, they're resting up, reflecting, and getting ready to head to college — together. SPONSORS: UCAN: Click here and use code ALI for 20% off your next UCAN order.

Kenny Kane is a life-long performer and coach who is fueled by improving quality of life for people in principled ways. He bought CrossFit Los Angeles in 2014 with a vision to build a unified coaching team and the business to support it. The business rebranded in 2017 as Oak Park, a nod to the Kenny's roots in Santa Rosa, CA as well as a symbolic transition to something evergreen. His dream has always been to create an environment where he can be a student and learn entirely new things from the people within it. As the Oak Park coaches and community continue to evolve, that dream becomes more of a reality. Kenny has an extraordinarily diverse background. He grew up in a family fitness business with a mother in the Swimming Hall of Fame and a father who was an officiant at the Olympics. At 15, he earned his Black Belt and began his coaching career as a martial arts instructor. Kenny attended UC Davis where he played soccer, ran track, and competed in triathlons. He then went on to teach physical education and drama in his hometown while training for the Olympic Trials. A career ending running injury pushed him to shift focus to stand-up comedy and private training. Kenny spent 14 years splitting time between training clients and touring the world. He performed standup and gave motivational talks while simultaneously transforming people as a coach. Kenny retired from performing in 2013 to do what he loves. He now dedicates all of his professional time to coaching and the business endeavors that support it. • This episode of The Ready State Podcast is brought to you by Momentous, the largest supplier of nutritional support to college, pro-sports teams, and the military in the world.

"After coming off of cross country and finishing second the year before, we were all really amped about having a team that could really win if we got it right. Obviously, it didn't turn out that way, especially for me. I had a terrible race at Nationals. It was still about going out there and going for that. Giving everything I had to my team is super important to me. That's what I also like about On. They're as team-oriented as a pro group can be. I really appreciated that and that will definitely help me in this next stage to have that team vibe but still be bought into something." Yared Nuguse just wrapped up his career at the University of Notre Dame, where he was an All-American and two-time NCAA champion with the 1500m outdoors and indoor DMR in 2019. He also held the NCAA record in the 1500m with a 3:34.68, which stood until it was broken this spring. He qualified for the Tokyo Olympics in the 1500m after finishing third at the Olympic Trials. Unfortunately, he had to withdraw from the Games in Tokyo due to a quad injury that he sustained while in Japan. So what's next? He's here with the news that he has signed with On Running and joining the On Athletics Club to work under coach Dathan Ritzenhein. Hear more about the move, what went wrong this past year but why things have turned and are now going right heading into the U.S. Championships, where he will be contesting the 1500 meters.

"I didn't do anything yet. I only made the Olympic team. I made the Olympic final. I only ran 19.4. I'm not saying that like it's slow. I didn't medal yet. I don't have a world record yet. It's not over. I don't think this is the highest point." Erriyon Knighton is just 18 years old but has already shattered some of Usain Bolt's junior sprint records. He also turned pro as a high schooler and signed with Adidas. Back in April, he ran a wind-legal 19.49 at a meet in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to become the fourth-fastest man in history. Only Bolt, Yohan Blake and Michael Johnson are ahead of him on the all-time list. Knighton ran 19.84 for the previous U20 record in the semifinal of the Olympic Trials. He made the team and was the youngest U.S. male track Olympian since Jim Ryun in the 60s. He finished fourth at last year's Olympics and you'll hear just how much he wants a piece of hardware. My colleague Mac Fleet and I traveled to Tampa earlier this month to spend some time with Erriyon and his coach Jonathan Terry. We will be releasing a video on our YouTube channel with some of the highlights of our time with him so subscribe and set your alerts to the CITIUS MAG YouTube channel for that and all our content from the upcoming US Championships and World Championships.

“I went into NCAAs thinking, ‘I need to perform for my team.' In those times that you're doubting yourself, that's partly why our team is so special. I see how hard my teammates work and I think, ‘OK. I owe them my best performance.' Even if I don't think I can pull it out for myself, I can pull it out for them.” You can make the case that Anna Hall is the best athlete on the University of Florida campus, which is wild considering all their sports teams. She won the heptathlon and finished second in the 400-meter hurdles at the NCAA Championships. It was one of the most impressive performances. That's seven events and two rounds of the 400m hurdles all out. I'm tired just thinking about it. She is also the U.S. champion from the USATF Combined Events Championships in May and has qualified for Team USA for the upcoming World Championships. She's been a multis star since high school. We go back to those days, why she gravitates towards challenging things, how she overcame disappointment from getting injured at last year's Olympic Trials and how she views her potential across so many different events.

"I never want the one-liners or personality to outweigh the analysis. That's kind of the focus I took in football. You want to tell the players' story and tell it the right way. I kind of just took that same thing over to track and told the athlete's story the right way. Talk about their accomplishments. Talk about what they're working on. The trick is – and I'm not giving away any secrets because you know this because that's what you're supposed to do in the broadcast – to get in and get out. Be able to tell the story quickly in 10-15 seconds...You can tell stories in football that can track the whole game. In track and field, you can't do that. As soon as the 100 is done, you have the hurdles. As soon as the hurdles are done, you've got the 400, then the 800. You have to work on your timing and how to tell those stories in the right way while also engaging the viewer." Robert Griffin III (RG3) is a former 400m hurdler from Baylor, former Big 12 conference champion, the third-place finisher and All-American at the 2008 NCAA Championships, U.S. Olympic Trials semifinalist but most people know of him for his football accomplishments including being a Heisman Trophy winner and Pro Bowl NFL quarterback. Well, he returned to track and field this weekend as an analyst with ESPN's broadcast of the NCAA Track and Field Championships and he crushed it. I had to get him on to talk about his experience getting behind the mic and hyping up what he believes to be the best athletes in the world. SUPPORT THE SPONSORS GARMIN: Music. Training. Data.
