In this episode of RunPod, Jenni is joined by a Gold medal winning Olympian fresh off the jet from Tokyo!
Joe Choong represented Team GB in the Modern Pentathlon and returned to Britain with a lovely bit of bling! The first British man to take gold in this event.
Joe chats to Jenni about the moment he knew he was going to win the gold medal and what it feels like to be the world number one in the sport.
They discuss fellow Team GB competitor, Kate French, who also won Gold in the Women’s Pentathlon.
You’ll hear about training for an event like this and how intensive it is when you have to excel at 5 different disciplines.
We learn which of those 5 modern pentathlon disciplines is the hardest, which is the preferred and Joe shares a ton of tips for anyone keen to improve their own running. Also he touches on how training for the modern pentathlon compares to other running events.
A great listen with a brilliant athlete who has most certainly made us all incredibly proud and after this episode you never know he might even inspire you to join a local modern Pentathlon club!
