Dame Valerie Adams: IAAF Inside Athletics Podcast

Apr 24, 2018, 01:13 PM

In this week’s IAAF Inside Athletics podcast, Ben Harlow (@_benharlow) and Katie Smith (@KCroydenSmith) delve into some of the big events that have happened in the past month. It’s fair to say, it’s been a busy few weeks for athletics fans! They’ll be discussing Commonwealth Games action from the Gold Coast; the Boston and London marathons which featured some unpredictable results and even more unpredictable weather as well as previewing the IAAF Race Walking Team Championships and the highly anticipated start to this seasons’ Diamond League. Away from the action, Ben and Katie also chat about the IAAF Gender Agenda campaign – an exploration of women across athletics for Women’s History Month.

And if that wasn’t enough, the podcast features exclusive interviews with two stars of track and field. Former race walker Inaki Gomez (@InakiGomezG) speaks about his role as the head of the Athletes’ Commission and shot put legend Dame Valerie Adams (@ValerieAdams84) opens up about her incredible career so far and the many battles she’s faced along the way.
