For all up and coming aspiring sports people who are talented, today we are joined by former Olympic, European and Commonwealth champion, Mark Lewis-Francis (@mlewisfrancis).

We discuss what makes a championship performer, his life and injury.

Mark was dubbed a child protégé and an exceptional talent of a generation who should go on to win major honors, but injury and his personal life away from the sport played a major part in the way his career turned out. His greatest sporting achievement at senior level was when he anchored the Great Britain and Northern Ireland 4 x 100 metres relay team to a gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics beating Olympic champion Maurice Greene in the process.

Mark talks about his journey, how he got into track & Field, his influences and  positive experiences during his career. He speaks about the death of his childhood coach and how it impacted him mentally. He gives advice to up & coming athletes, he talks about the impact of injury and what it was like working with the Olympic Champion Linford Christie.

What We Discuss with Mark:

  • Handling the death of his childhood coach.
  • What it was like being a teenage sensation.
  • Becoming Britain’s first ever Olympic Gold Medallist in the relay.
  • Dealing with injury and coming back to winning ways.
  • Life after Track and Field.
  • And much more…
