Sally El Hosaini joins Anna Smith to discuss her new film The Swimmers and to talk in-depth about compassion and empathy in her work, her filmmaking as a political act, and her journey to become a director. Anna also speaks with the stars of the film, real-life siblings, Nathalie and Manal Issa, as well as one of the women who inspired the film, Yusra Mardini. They talk about their shared experience of being displaced from their homes, and the special relationship between sisters. Based on a true story, The Swimmers follows sisters Yusra and Sara Mardini from their war-torn Syrian home via Germany to the 2016 Rio Olympics. Over the course of their harrowing journey as refugees they put their skills as champion swimmers to heroic use, and this becomes their saving grace. The girls' story is an uplifting and inspiring look at sisterhood, compassion, bravery and the refugee experience. There's also a postscript to the film: Sara Mardini is now a humanitarian worker who has been helping refugees in Greece. She has been charged with people smuggling - her trial is currently on hold: https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/11/sean-binder-and-sarah-mardinis-lives-remain-on-hold-as-trial-is-adjourned/ The Swimmers is in select UK cinemas now and will be available globally on Netflix from 23rd November.

This special episode is a reminder, in the face of so much hateful rhetoric from government officials, that refugees need our allyship, not our prejudice. Today we are joined by one of the most inspirational people I have ever met, Yusra Mardini who has overcome what are unimaginable obstacles for most of us, but which are daily obstacles for so many fleeing prejudice and war the world over. In March 2011 when civil war broke out in Syria, Yusra - trained by her father - had dreams of becoming an Olympic swimmer. But by August 2015 she and her sister, Sarah had no choice but to leave their family behind and undertake a journey which no one should have to. Their perilous journey to Europe saw the sisters fly to Istanbul before paying human traffickers to take them to Greece, and overland to Germany. What occurred in the sea en route to Greece is beyond harrowing. With 18 people on board, the dingy started to sink and for three hours Yusra and Sarah had no option but to swim alongside the boat. Not only did Yusra make it to Germany, but after finding a new coach, she signed up to represent the refugee team at the 2016 Rio Olympics; a true testament to human determination. She went on to carry the Olympic flag for the Refugee team at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics and has since been named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador to help spread awareness of the plight of refugees. It's no wonder the Mardini sister's story has now been made into one of the most moving films I have ever seen, The Swimmers, which is now available on Netflix.The Swimmers is a timely story everyone needs to watch and even more pressing when you consider Sarah Mardini could be facing decades in prison after returning to Lebos to help vulnerable people arriving on Greek shores. I hope you find this powerful conversation with Yusra just as inspiring as I did and if you do want to find out more about how you can help refugees the world over please visit choose.love. I also hope you keep on listening and finding the power to Reign in your own lives, too. If you love this episode, please get in touch (follow me across social media @joshsmithhosts), I love hearing from you. Love, Josh xxx

Last weekend's semi-final was one of the most exhilarating, desperate, thrilling rugby games I've ever seen in my life. It felt chaotic. Totally unpredictable. The French dominated at the breakdown. The New Zealanders played at such a tempo, lunging and scrambling and hurling the ball wide. God, it was exciting. After 80 minutes, you'd have to say agree, no team deserved to lose that game. But the best teams will take every flicker of good fortune they can muster. And so tonight, the Black Ferns contest the final. I've told you before about my past experience with the women's sevens rugby team. It was eight years ago in Brazil, when the team had just been formed to compete on the World tour. I flew down and spent a week living and working with them in Rio de Janiero. Because rugby sevens was to become an Olympic sport, and because there was now a Women's World's Series to contest, New Zealand Rugby had started investing in women's rugby in a way they hadn't before. Still, back then, few Kiwi rugby fans would have known the players' names. I was only there for a week, but by living, and eating, playing cards and even exercising with the team, I had a really special insight into a group of young women would be soon be stars. They were captained by a workhorse called Sarah Hirini. They had a star winger called Portia Woodman and a young smartass cracking jokes in the locker room and putting gangsta' rap on the stereo, called Ruby Tui. They were young. They were very fresh. But already you could sense extraordinary potential. That team won Sevens World Champs after Sevens World Champs, but when it came to the Rio Olympics, they had to settle for silver. It was a tough experience. I was there at the Olympic Park that night in 2016, watching the match slip from their hands. They didn't deserve to win but nonetheless it was very emotional. But you might also remember how it ended for the Sevens Sisters. Five years later at the Tokyo Olympics, they turned it around. Five years of graft, separation from their families, and Covid-19 disruption, and they did it. They were the darlings of New Zealand's Olympic team, and they returned home with gold medals swinging from their necks. Sarah Hirini, Portia Woodman, and Ruby Tui will all start tonight. This game is different, I get that. England are the dominant team in World rugby. Their forwards are incredible. And most obviously, this is a game of fifteens, not rugby sevens. But finals are decided by moments. And perhaps even more valuable than form, is a team's capacity to respond to pressure. This will be the biggest crowd to ever watch a women's rugby match. And pressure does funny things. No matter what happens, nice to know that within that amazing Black Ferns squad, there are players who've been there and done that. I don't need to state the obvious but I will anyway. Win or lose, the Black Ferns have been a joy to watch throughout this World Cup. Their humanity as individuals makes them far more fun to support than the men. They don't hesitate to show emotion. For their sake, tonight, I really hope it's joy.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On this ID the Future, Stuart Burgess, one of Britain’s top engineers, explains how the skeletal joints in the human body are masterpieces of intelligent design. He also responds to claims by some evolutionists that human joints are badly designed and supposedly evidence of Darwinian evolution's blind trial-and-error process. This presentation was taped at the 2022 Westminster Conference on Science and Faith in the greater Philadelphia area, which was jointly sponsored by Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, and Westminster Theological Seminary. Here in Part 1, Burgess focuses on the ankle joint, showing that it packs an extraordinary amount of functionality into a small space, beyond anything human engineers have managed to achieve either in prosthetics or robotics.

This week on the Championship Mindset Podcast we speak Olympic Gold Medalist and 2x World Record Holder, Wayde van Niekerk. Originally from South Africa, Wayde is the only person in history to have a sub 10 second 100m, sub 20 second 200m, and sub 44 second 400m. In the 2016 Rio Olympics, Van Neikerk drew lane 8 in the 400m final where he became the first athlete to win the Olympics or World Championship from the outside lane. Starting out in the stagger, Wayde went out fast and ultimately ran the entire 400m race without seeing another competitor. In doing so, he broke Michael Johnsons record that was set in 1999. We hope you enjoy our conversation with Wayde van Niekerk.

Dad, Olympian and Founder at Yes You Can Drinks, Tyler Martin, discusses competing at the Rio olympics, what he's learned as a dad and how fathering has changed forever.
A few weeks ago, Cam and I had the opportunity to sit down with Erin Teschuk, a Team Canada and New Balance athlete who was a teammate of ours at NDSU. We interviewed her right after the NACAC Championships in the Bahamas, where she wore the Team Canada uniform and placed 5th in the 1500. She had a tremendous 2022 season, competing in the steeplechase early before shifting her focus to the 1500. Erin's had an awesome running career, earning multiple All-American finishes at NDSU to competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics. We've really enjoyed cheering for Erin Teschuk and we think you'll be a fan, too, after listening to this interview.
This week Haddy checks in with the incredible Brett Robinson as he prepares for the upcoming London Marathon. Brett holds Australia's fastest Half Marathon title, and he's the only Australian to break the 60-minute barrier, with his record of 59:57. Since emerging through the junior ranks as a top 1500m runner, Brett has developed into a world-class senior athlete, seeing him make finals appearances in the 5000m at both the 2013 World Championships and 2016 Rio Olympics. In recent years, he has shifted focus to the Marathon, with a current personal best of 2:10:55 and another Aussie Olympic Jersey at the Tokyo Games. Brett was a big part of the Ineos 1:59 run, taking the wind for the legendary Eluid Kipchoge and is the current Melbourne Marathon Champion. Brett has been coached by the greats of Aussie distance running, Philo Saunders and Nic Bideau, but is also coaching a group of athletes for Pulse Running so his depth of knowledge is outstanding. We discuss all aspects of training and racing, from nutrition, psychology and pacing to how hard to hit the after party circuit! We also chat about Brett's role as an ambassador for the Blackmore's Running Festival and it's tilt at the World Marathon Majors plus his desire to get muddy at next year's World Cross Country in Bathurst.

After almost 30 years in the sport of Triathlon, Nicola Spirig completed her final rae this past weekend and we wanted to celebrate the incredible career of Nicola Spirig. In today's episode (recorded in November 2021), Greg is joined by his wife Laura, and they talk with Nicola about her career and pull apart specific races and moments. Nicola Spirig is a Swiss professional triathlete. She is a five-time Olympian, the 2012 Olympic, and six times European champion in women's triathlon. Nicola is married to fellow retired athlete Reto Hug, has three children, and during her athletic career completed a law degree. As the conversation kicks off, Greg asks Nicola to reflect on this past year in the sport. She has been training and her next large goal is to complete an IronMan race in under eight hours. Even if a goal sounds impossible, she says it's important to try, especially when the intention is to inspire others to follow their dreams. Nicola isn't an extrovert who loves being in front of others, but she does love working with young people and is glad her status as an Olympian has given her this platform. Going into the Tokyo Olympics, Nicola was ready. She was able to prepare without injury, compete in and win other good races like the European Championships, and beat some of her own personal best times. On race day, even though everyone had prepared for a hot day, it was raining, which for Nicola wasn't a problem and she placed sixth. Today, she says she's happy with her performance and wouldn't change anything even though she didn't get the medal she was aiming for. Nicola grew up with parents who were sports teachers and had the luxury of trying many different sports. For a long time, she didn't think of triathlon as a career, but rather as something she loved to do. She only considered herself a professional athlete for about two years, despite being involved in the sport for much longer. Her preparation around the London 2012 Olympics was nearly perfect and her at a professional level. She won the Olympic Gold medal just ahead of Lisa Norden, with their times being the same, and only a photograph was able to be used to separate their crossing the finish line. For the Rio Olympics, things were different. She was injured, the defending Olympic champion, and she'd had a baby in the years since her Olympic win. She took home the silver from that race and says the experience was much different than the London Olympics, but she was still very happy with her performance. She reminds listeners that while yes it takes a lot to get a medal in the Olympic games, it also takes a lot to finish fourth, sixth, or tenth. Laura and Greg then ask Nicola rapid-fire questions covering everything from TV and movies to household chores, to her taste in music. They wrap up the episode with Nicola sharing what her day-to-day life is like these days.

Eoin Everard is a long-time listener of RunChats, who hails from Kilkenny, Ireland, and reached out to collaborate on this episode. I'm so stoked to share his inspiring running journey and lessons learned as a sub-4 minute miler, sub-14 5K, sub-30 10K, and 5X Irish National Champion. Eoin (pronounced Owen) is currently the 3K European Indoor Masters Champion and in his professional life is a chartered physio, who holds a PhD in Biomechanics. Part One: We discuss his amazing running journey. His sporty, competitive, turbo-fast family. With an older brother who ran for the National cross-country team, Eoin shared a funny story how he regularly razzed him about it. His sister ran the 800m in the Rio Olympics—can you say FAST FAMILY?! How he took a year off to fully dedicate himself to being his best, chasing an Olympic dream, worked on his mindset, and in his words, "ran like a donkey." He then had an epiphany that nobody gives a sh*t what times he was running. If he was happy, his family and closest friends were happy. He went on to become a 5X Irish National Champ after letting go of that self-imposed pressure. Part Two: Eoin has spent his life focused on how runners move and how to try and help them to move better, get stronger, and faster through his Pilates practice. We discuss muscle activation, running mechanics, injury prevention, carbon shoes, and varying training intensities. We took a deeper dive on how trying to improve one's running stride can be a cautionary tale and lead to injuries and on keys to avoiding injury long-term. I hope you will be inspired by Eoin's running journey, lessons learned and shared, and enjoy his proper Irish accent as much as my mom (née McCabe)! If you enjoy the episode, it would mean the world to me if you would rate the podcast or write a review and share feedback wherever you get your podcast groove on.

There is so much we could tell you about Peter Caruth - who has justifiably earned his reputation as a bit of a legend in the world of Irish hockey. There's the silverware he's won at club level, as well as the bronze he took with the Irish national side at the 2015 Eurohockey Nations Championship – plus the small matter of the Rio Olympics in 2016, and the fact he's amassed more than 140 caps for Ireland. Or we could tell you about that moment, exactly two months ago in June, where he told the world about the fact he's gay – and became the first Ireland men's hockey international to ever come out. But honestly, we'd rather you just listened to this episode, which might be one of the best we've ever done. Because if this podcast is just meant to be a chat, then that's exactly what this one with Peter is – a wide-ranging conversation that will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you literally hold your breath. It's something that weaves between the sporting and the deeply, deeply personal – and we think you should just make some time in your day to listen to it in full, because you won't regret it. From concocting a scheme to nab Usain Bolt's autograph to the pain he felt inside while concealing his sexuality, Peter is honest about it all to the absolute core – and we can't thank him enough for this gift of a conversation.

Eliza is a professional pole vaulter and one of the very best in the world. She burst onto the scene as a 19-year old, taking home bronze from the Rio Olympics, before winning silver at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, and smashing indoor and outdoor Oceania records. In this episode we talk about going to school with Lorde, the time she accidentally stumbled on a nude beach, why her coach made her tell a joke each week, her rise to the top of the pole vaulting world and the whirlwind of fame that followed her Olympic bronze. Eliza's career has stalled recently with an unfortunate run of injuries that prevented her from competing at this year's Commonwealth Games. We talk about the mental and physical struggle of dealing with injuries, and the inspiring rebuild that's happening now. Eliza is such good company and we both really loved this chat. In the second half we go quite deep on the injury situation, and you'll get a really clear picture of what a tough few years it's been for her. This was actually her first ever podcast appearance, and we're really grateful she came on to share her story.

We sat down with recently crowned 2022 World Champion in the 50 breast, Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania. Ruta dives deep on a lot of topics, first of which is being back in major international competition for the first time in 3 years and managing to medal in both of her events. We then work backward through her dealing with an eating disorder, learning how to take care of her mental health (starting that process just months before the Rio Olympics), and serving a 2-year suspension from racing for missing 3 doping tests. Ruta is candid in her responses and shares knowledge that has come after over a decade at the highest level of competitive sport.
In today's episode of the social justice podcast Play It Forward presented by PeacePlayers, power couple Evan Unrau and Seb Kimyacioglo share their personal journeys from playing collegiate basketball to falling in love. Seb Kimyacioglo is a former professional basketball player having won trophies with Galatasaray in Turkey, represented Turkey at the Rio Olympics, and now works for the FOX corporation! Evan, also a former professional basketball player, went down the coaching route and shares with us some of those experiences that led her to her current role as director of PeacePlayers Los Angeles. We ultimately arrive at how their two journeys were interconnected and led them both to be confident and comfortable with who they are, which allows them to be their fullest selves in their relationship with each other, their peers, and the people they engage with. AND we also get to hear who they think would win in a one-on-one match-up. As Chinny says at the top of the episode, we were originally hoping to share this during Pride month in June, BUT let's make EVERY month PRIDE MONTH!

She calls herself an ‘Unlikely Olympian', but to us, there's nothing improbable about the success of this week's podcast guest, @DanielleKettlewell_. In fact, she's the kind of woman who exudes nothing but hard work, determination, and grit. Buckle in for this story people, because it's one heck of a ride! If you haven't heard of Danielle before, she's an inspiring young speaker and coach, who teaches others about the power of mindset and manifestation, and who's written her own book. Oh… and she's an Olympian, having competed at the freaking 2016 Rio Olympics!!! Danielle was one of just nine people in the Australian female Synchronised Swimming squad, but it was her journey to even get there that proves just how special she is. From suffering a concussion, to packing up her life and moving across the world by herself, and spending eight hours training everyday, Danielle says it was never about winning - it was always about realising how good she could be. “It was about proving to myself that I was good enough. Letting go of the outcome and being proud of who I became. The outcome doesn't prove your worth.” And how did she do it? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out. But it has a lot to do with transforming her mindset and self-worth. Because, as Danielle says: “There's an Unlikely Olympian in all of us.”
British runner Aly Dixon first joined her local running club when she was 11 years old. It took time and patience for the proud Mackem (Sunderland) to get her first England vest at 29 and it was another two years before her first GB vest at 31. Her confidence hit rock bottom and she threw her trainers in the bin after the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. And it was her friend Paula Radcliffe who helped her to rekindle her love for running. Aly went on to fulfil a childhood dream of competing at the Rio Olympics, she finished 6th at the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and became World Champion over 50km in 2019. Aly retired from international competition in 2021 but is just as passionate about running. You'll hear: 09:10 Tan lines of runners v triathletes 10:00 "I do plan on doing a triathlon at some point. The next challenge is now a triathlon and I do have a crazy ideas that I want to do an Ironman but I think about it for 20 seconds. I am just waiting for someone to get me drunk and hit that enter button. I've joined a triathlon club, so its the start of a slippery slope. 11:25 Aly talks about descending on a bike and how she has been overcoming her fear of going downhill. 'I think I was the only cyclist going down Sa Calobra to be glad to be stuck behind a tourist bus" 14:40 Aly's running career and how she needed a lot pf patience. "I didn't get my first England vest until I was 29 and my first GB vest until I was 31. From joining the club at 11 or 12 to retiring from international retirement at 43, it's been a long journey. 21:40 Completing Vs competing. One day there will be a time that I can truly go in and not worry about a time. I have to remember that I am 43, I shouldn't be and can't be competing against people in their mid-30s. It's about being realistic and setting myself targets. I have to remind myself I'm still doing well as a 43 year old even though identify as a 27 year old. But I know I can't expect too much of myself. I keep on telling myself not to put any pressure on myself, as I'm only training 1/3 of what I used to. I can't compare 2022 Aly to 2017 Aly but you're always going to look back to what you have achieved and if I keep doing that, it will take away the love of it. 27:25 Loving running. 'I just love the feeling of running, so as long as I can do it, I'll do it. 29:10 My work colleagues think I'm mad for doing things at lunch time. But it's an addiction. But what are you going to replace it with? Beer and become obese? 30:10 Aly on Rio 2016 'It still doesn't feel real. I think I was 37 at the Olympics and I knew it was unusual, but I never felt like I was doing it for anyone else. Growing up, I put Olympians as demi-Gods who were not ordinary people. It's something I will be forever proud of, but it doesn't feel like it did when I was growing up. 33:40 Aly talks about how Paula Radcliffe went from being her teenage hero to a good friend. She was one of the most instrumental people to get to the Olympics. After (Glasgow) 2014, I decided I was never going to run again. I had lost all confidence and she took me under her wings and build up my confidence, confirming 'you are in great shape, you can do this.' Without her and the belief she had, I would have walked away. I do owe her a lot. 37:40 When confidence was rock bottom, how did she turn it around? I don't love it for the medals, i love it for everything else. "One bad run doesn't make you a bad runner." 45:40 Talent Vs hard work. 'My talent is that I can work hard. Running 120, 130 miles at times. It's ingrained from my dad, I watched him and he was a workhorse. I have phsyios who look at me who say 'how do you do it?' But I look back now and I know I did too much mileage. I could have been smarter with my training and I could have jumped on a turbo rather than going out on a 6 mile recovery run. 51:40 Aly talks about how important nutrition is and it's so important not to take shortcuts. 54:30

Danny is a coach whose success has been built on his ability to self-reflect, learn and evolve. His story contains several pronounced inflection points and in this interview he discusses both in detail. His style is intense, and couples both the science of physical and mental development with a player-first philosophy that places the individual and their unique needs ahead of team development. His also innovative and not afraid to try and fail to find a way to step change performance. Some of the many highlights in this interview include: How he focuses on density of decision making in training to help the team regulate their emotional response in games. The process his athletes go through to raise their self-awareness and discover their own sense of purpose. And how this in turn leads to greater mutual understanding between the players and staff, And how helping athletes deal with self doubt or their inner critic is an under reported aspect of the role of the Head Coach. This was a deep and insightful conversation, and I hope you enjoy it as I did.
