The Tokyo Paralympics were held this summer and American elite athletes, who have physical and neurological disabilities, medaled in competitions from archery to swimming. Paralympians like Breanna Clark who is autistic, the first female U.S. athlete to win gold for 400m track in 2016 and who broke a world record this summer in Tokyo. But had Breanna not been an athlete with access to custom training, she would likely not have been able to work out in a gym. Typical gyms normally don't accommodate people like her with autism, Down syndrome, or cerebral palsy, conditions known as neurodiverse. Not only are the flashing lights and sounds in typical gyms often disorienting, but also many physical trainers haven't worked with neurodiverse people. But one local gym is changing that – Greater Boston's Inclusive Fitness is creating both a workout space and a community. GUESTS: Greg Austin, founder, president, and coach at Inclusive Fitness, a Boston-based gym that specializes in training neurodiverse people. Kristin Abendroth, director of client experience and head neurotypical coach at Inclusive Ftiness. Barbara Baker, parent of Mary Gwen, an Inclusive Fitness athlete.

As well as her achievements in the rugby and basketball world, Chloe then crossed codes again to Aussie Rules. She made her debut in 2019 for Carlton in the AFLW, Chloe was recently named Runner-Up in the Carlton Best and Fairest Awards for the 2020 AFLW season.   In this episode, we learn what it takes to compete at the highest level across three sports & the journey to success of some of the top female Australian athletes. We dive into: How Chloe was a driving factor into getting the Paralympians competing at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics the same pay for winning medals as the other Olympic athletes.    The reason behind creating ‘The Female Athlete Project' and why it is such a game-changer in the world of sport.   Challenging the misconception around women's sports and shedding light on their achievements and gaining mainstream media exposure.    How Chloe managed to stay at the top of her game in each sporting code and receiving huge praise and accolades after each sporting transition. If you are an aspiring young athlete who is striving to make the next level then Chloe will give you the inspiration to do so. This episode is about the journey to becoming a professional athlete and gives you advice on how to handle pressure and adversity along the way.    This podcast is extremely relevant in the sporting world because women's sports have typically had a back seat in terms of media coverage. As women's sports is growing rapidly so are their successes and Chloe has created a platform to share and expose the incredible stories of Australian female athletes.

Taylor Knibb was part of the silver medal winning Team USA in the Mixed Relay at Tokyo 2020.  She's no stranger to success, twice winning the Junior World Championships and being crowned U23 World Champion. She qualified for the Tokyo Olympics by winning WTCS Yokohama. And she really caught people's attention with some phenomenal performances on her road bike with aero bars. First on her Ironman 70.3 debut in Boulder to qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, and then again at the Collins Cup, where she beat Teresa Adam and the phenomenal Daniela Ryf. This athlete is going places! You'll hear:   06:45 What is Taylor doing in her bike sessions that nobody else is? 09:50 Why she is going to be changing her swim very soon 11:15 The influence of her mum, Leslie Knibb, who is a triathlon coach and successful age group triathlete. Taylor dropped her mum on the bike for the first time in 2012, as her mum was preparing for Kona! 15:40 Taylor talks about the first time Taylor broke away with Flora Duffy in a WTS race in 2017 'I was 19, it was very intimidating and she didn't say anything the whole ride' 19:35 About her training group in Boulder, under coach Ian O'Brien and why she spends a lot of time training with Jeanni Metzler. 21:00 About her Ironman 70.3 debut 'when I showed up to Boulder for Ironman 70.3 I had taped all of my gels to the top tube of my bike and apparently you don't do that in a 70.3 race. Apparently on the broadcast they were counting the gels I had taken because they could see the electric tape.' 27:20 I don't think I had expectations for this year. I was just focussing on one thing at a time, but the Olympics was the thing I wanted to do the best in, and I didn't so that has a bit of a dark cloud over it, but I was able to learn from it and I definitely don't want to make the same mistakes again. I am bummed about that. I don't want to make the same mistake twice. 30:20 Why she watches as much triathlon as she can 'I think I have watched every single World Championship Series race since 2009. I love watching the races I haven't been in and the ones I have been in and I think I learn more from watching them than racing them sometimes. I only learnt about triathlon in 2013 and I watched the races to learn about the sport as a whole. When I was a Junior I watched them to learn about the racing and now it's more about learning about my competitors and how the races pan out. 35:00 Her reaction when she found out she would be racing against Daniela Ryf and Teresa Adam at the Collins Cup. I had nothing to lose. But you can't say you're not scared lining up against Daniela Ryf, but it was also a huge honour lining up against her. "To be able to race her is so neat, I was just excited and grateful for the opportunity." 39:40 I felt bad for Daniela at the Collins Cup. I was just waiting for her to come past me. I went out way too hard on the bike and I wanted her to pass me because I wanted to see just how fast she goes, but hopefully some day that will happen. I still want to be better because I still made mistakes. 43:00 How she developed a competitive side with her brother when they were kids. 47:00 Why she is still trying to get better at switching off a bit and why it was easier to switch off from triathlon when she was University. Also this week... 57:00 GB Paratriathlete Fran Brown talks us through her 4th place finish at the Tokyo Paralympics. "It wasn't quite what I had planned."

Love triathlon? Love rugby? Love Wales? Then this episode is for you! Former Wales international Shane Williams talks about his journey from being one of the best wings in the world, to being a multiple Ironman finisher. The 5ft7 wing who was International Player of the Year in 2008, won 87 caps for Wales and made multiple appearances for the British and Irish Lions. Since retiring, he has turned his hand to endurance sports and has been a regular at Ironman Wales. You'll hear: 06:30 The trigger for getting into triathlon 09:00 His first Ironman Wales 'At times, I absolutely hated it, but at times I absolutely loved it. From start to finish I was absolutely petrified.' 12:30 How he got the likes of Ian Gough and Ryan Jones involved. 15:00 The difference between the physical pain of playing rugby and doing a triathlon 18:00 Dark places on the rugby pitch Vs dark places in a race 25:10 Which rugby player would he most like to race against in a triathlon and who would be in his ideal triathlon relay from the rugby world? 36:00 How his nutrition differs between when he was a rugby player and now he is training for a triathlon. If anything I pay more attention to my diet now than I did as a professional rugby player. I was told what to eat and when to eat it and I would usually go up for seconds. Does he miss his rugby body? I probably don't. I'm still quite muscly, but my body has changed completely. My body fat is lower than when I was playing. I probably look better now than I did when I was playing rugby, I feel lighter, I'm lighter on my feet. I look completely different and I see pictures of me and I'm probably healthier now then when I was then. 41:44 What tips would he have for anyone doing Ironman Wales. 'The more training you put in, the easier Ironman Wales is and the more you enjoy it on the day. Left no stone unturned in your training and then you will enjoy the day. In 2015 I didn't appreciate how tough it would be and it spat me out. For long periods of that day, I hated it. ' 43:00 Whether he'll be getting his https://fabfourcoffee.com/ (FabFour coffee) founders involved and why he started his own sportswear brand, https://www.agilissport.com/ (Agilis).

We have already bagged 10 medals, with two gold, five silver and three bronze. This has generated a lot of curiosity, both about these successful para-athletes and about the Paralympics itself. For para-athletes, the rules and requirements of competition, as well as the challenges, are different from what they are for the able-bodied. They come under the spotlight whenever the Paralympics are held but are mostly forgotten in the intervening years.

With just days to go before the Tokyo Paralympics, an international campaign called WeThe15 has been launched to improve the lives of the 1.2bn disabled people around the world. Meet South African Eddie Ndopu. He is an internationally acclaimed writer, or “mover and shaker”, who also works for the United Nations. Eddie, disabled himself, gives us the lowdown of WeThe15 on this podcast. You'll love him. He also hopes to become the first disabled person in space. While he might have signed several NDAs on these “imminent” plans, Eddie couldn't help but spill some of the secrets to BBC Ouch. According to the World Health Organisation, 15% of the world's population is disabled, hence WeThe15. Spearheaded by the International Paralympic Committee and International Disability Alliance, the project has brought together organisations from Unesco to The Valuable 500 big businesses for the first time. Presented by Beth Rose and Emma Tracey.
