Running on Emotion

Subscribe: AppleSpotifyGlobal

Those of us that love sport, live it and breathe it. We feel it. It reaches deep down into our body and soul, and elicits every emotion imaginable: from despair to elation, from vulnerability to anger. Whether we’re playing sport, coaching it, watching it, listening to it, or reading about it, our emotions drive our every response and relentlessly keep us coming back for more.

This is a podcast that explores twelve key emotions with some stellar sporting names, and uncovers just how those feelings affected their careers, both as a motivation, and as a limitation. It is a journey into the emotional psyche of some Britain’s most talented, most successful, most articulate sportsmen and women.

Running on Emotion – Episode Four, David Weir

David is one of Britain’s most decorated Paralympic athletes, becoming a household name in the glorious sporting summer of 2012. He was born with a spinal cord transection, meaning he has no movement in the lower half of his body. His early years were enormously challenging, but through a combination of God-given talent, and an unbending will, he rose through the sporting ranks to experience the joy of an extraordinary eight London Marathon victories, as a wheelchair racer, and no fewer than six Paralympic Gold medals, to go with his two silvers and two bronze. Four of those Gold medals came in a sensational ten days during the London Games, a period which led to untold joy on the track, and a deep satisfaction off it, at the changing perception of Paralympic athletes both in this country and across the globe.
