With less than one month to go until the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Team GB have launched a brand new podcast to celebrate their Tokyo-bound Olympians in the build-up to the world’s biggest sporting event.
Relay is supported by GoDaddy, the official domain name, website builder and web hosting partner of Team GB
Hosted by Olympic super-fan Vernon Kay, double Olympic gold medallist Nicola Adams and comedian Rhys James, Relay features fun and in-depth chats with an array of Team GB athletes, engaging fans across the country with the aim of entertaining and inspiring the nation as momentum grows in the lead-up to Tokyo 2020.
The first episode is available now with taekwondo star Bianca Walkden joining Vernon, Nicola and Rhys to talk lucky charms, sparring with her boyfriend, running a pizza company and how a girl from Liverpool became one of the biggest names in her sport. Further episodes in the series will be released weekly on Fridays.
In the series, Relay also explores the wider interests of athletes away from their sport. Episode two champions the remarkable story of Tokyo-bound boxer Chev Clarke whose selection to the Games comes via football, driving HGVs as well as becoming an entrepreneur, through building his own online clothing brand, Level Up Nation.
The podcast will run weekly for six episodes in the run-up to the Games with two further episodes being released during and just after Tokyo 2020.
Produced by TBI Media, Relay is available on all major podcast platforms and you can listen and subscribe here: https://podfollow.com/relay-the-team-gb-podcast.
