Podcast #10 – Two Inspiring Athletes Who Have Overcome Adversity, plus so much more.

We are back with another show and if we do say so ourselves we reckon it’s another great one!

Two great guests who have both overcome adversity and shown that there is always a solution to a problem. Andrew Liddawi was the first paraplegic to take part in the Cape to Cape Mountain Bike event two years ago when he completed one stage of the gruelling event. This year he completed all four stages, all 200KM. We catch up with him and hear how hand-cycle Mountain Biking is now growing.

Sutherlan Scudds is a man wo we have featured on the show before as he pursues his fencing dream of representing Australia at the Rio Olympics. Last year was more testing than most for WA Institute of Sport athlete Sutherlan as he suffered a seizure during training which revealed a brain tumour. He has battled through that setback and is once again on the path to qualify for Rio.

Also under the microscope is whether South Africa having won their confederation’s Hockey Championship should be allowed to go to Rio. The South African Olympic Committee had announced that even if they won the title the team would not go, due to a lack of funds. Now the team is trying to drum up support to take the place they won on merit.

We also review the Rugby World Cup and its impact on the NRC here in Australia, as well as discuss whether Perth Glory did deserve to host the FFA Cup final, as well as whether this competition really has caught the imagination of the fans; crowd figures would say it hasn’t. Hope you enjoy this and feel free to download previous shows now available on I-tunes.
