Alistair Brownlee is the Dual Olympic Games Champion (2012 and 2016 Olympic Games) becoming the first Triathlete in history to have defended their title.  His younger brother Jonny secured the bronze in London making history as the first brothers in Olympic history for a podium in an individual sport since 1908. Jonny’s silver in 2016 made history again for the brothers becoming the first British brothers to ever finish first and second in an individual event at an Olympic Games. Alistair is the two-time World Series Triathlon Champion, 4X European Champion and 2014 Commonwealth Games Champion.  Alistair is the first triathlete to be nominated for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year and was bestowed the honour of flagbearer for England in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Alistair was a candidate for the International Olympic Committee's Athletes Commission and has since turned his attention to long course racing having picked up Dual Ironman Distance race wins, runner up in the 2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championships and an eye on becoming the first triathlete in history to break the seven-hour barrier for an Ironman distance event with Phoenix's sub seven-hour attempt upcoming in 2022. Alistair has become an author, publishing "Relentless: Secrets of the Sporting Elite". 

In this episode Alistair discusses "Relentless", his career highs, lows and learnings, his own reflection on dropping Jonny in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Triathlon to secure the win. We look at that history making event, the grand final of the World Triathlon series in Cozumel 2016, where Alistair in what many have said redefined their confidence and faith in modern sport by carrying and assisting heat stricken younger brother Jonny across the line.

On this bonus episode we are showcasing the grit and willpower of two of our Australian athletics team members Genevieve Gregson Nee LaCaze and Patrick Tiernan.

Most of us will have seen both of these athletes endure Olympic performances that they did not expect with Genevieve Gregson on the final water hurdle of the 3000m steeplechase succumbing to a ruptured Achilles. It was heartbreaking for everyone watching, later that evening, as Gen sat in the medical room with a splint on her leg she posted to social media “I'm heartbroken and don't have the words right now to respond to you all, but in short, Ruptured Achilles on the last water jump Happy Birthday me, thank you for the support and messages I'll try to respond in time for now I need to mend my heart, soul and achilles”. At the time of our catchup, Gen was just several days post achilles tendon repair, in managed isolation and quarantine and the emotions are still very raw.  

In addition on this bonus episode, you'll hear from Aussie hero, Patrick Teirnan, with just 150m left to run in the men's 10,000m track final, fell valiantly, picking himself up several times to get across that finish line. The fall was out of absolute exhaustion with possible effects from the heat. You'll hear Pat outline how the 10,000m race has been one of great highs and great lows. Pat was in hotel quarantine in Brisbane, he reflects on the disappointment of getting so close to what would have been a career best performance with a certain top 10 finish in the 10,000m final before things didn't go to plan.

Professor Stuart Warden is an avid runner.  Academically and professionally Dr Stuart Warden serves as a Professor of Physical Therapy and the Associate Dean for Research within the Indiana University School of Health & Human Sciences. Professor Stu embarked on a Post Doctorate at the Australian Institute of Sport and Indiana University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, following graduation from the University of Melbourne with a Physiotherapy Degree in 2001. Professor Warden's research interests focus on the form and function of the musculoskeletal system, in-particular the lifelong contribution of physical activity to skeletal health. Professor Stu has contributed to over 170 peer reviewed publications and currently serves as an Associate Editor for The Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy and also as an Editorial Board Member for Bone, Journal of Bone and Mineral Research and the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport.

Professor Stuart Warden alongside colleagues Brent Edwards and Dr Rich Willy released a landmark commentary by way of a scientific paper titled "Preventing Bone Stress Injuries in Runners with Optimal Workload". It was published in February 2021 and it's a must read for any Coach, Athlete or Practitioner working in the field of endurance sports.

In this episode we dive deep into its contents:

  • What the author's mean by bone workload
  • Optimal workload to induce skeletal adaptation
  • The fact that not all athletes have good skeletons
  • Why it is that distance running does not build good bones
  • How we can use periodisation to help build more bone
  • The effects of early specialisation with sport and the contribution to bone stress injury risk
  • Why it is that optimising bone structure is critical and how it only develops before puberty
  • How it is that we can positively affect our bone density and bone architecture through loading with multiple direction jumps and why it is only during puberty that this is possible
  • How we can positively increase the robustness of our skeleton through bone centric exercises
  • How we can try and minimise training errors to avoid the onset of a bone stress injury, a stress fracture a stress reaction or similar

Dr Ashar Khan is a Specialist Psychiatrist, Director and Founder of Queensland ADHD and Neurosciences Clinic. Dr Khan first recognised the vast prevalence of undetected ADHD during his addiction training. Dr Khan observed similar patterns of lack of recognition, early detection and diagnosis, a one-stop specialist platform for early diagnostic detection and treatment intervention specifically for ADHD, autism or other specific learning disorders. Queensland ADHD & Neurosciences Clinic was set up as a novel unique clinic allowing top experts in neuro-developmental disorders using a cutting-edge scientific approach in keeping with modern research and international guidelines.

Dr Khan is a Sub-Specialist in Neurocognitive Disorders for children, adolescents and adults, offering expertise in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders including Aspergers, specific learning deficits and the dual diagnosis of Neurocognitive Developmental Disorders co-existing with addiction behaviour.

During this episode Dr Khan outlines the prevalence of ADHD in society and amongst athletes, how to diagnose ADHD and what are the three key attributes or characteristics of the ADHD brain. Dr Khan shares around the biology of the ADHD brain and explains why it is that the ADHD brain will always crave dopamine, why ADHD brains are not necessarily addicted to exercise, but rather will display or exhibit addictive behaviours and why it's important to make that distinction. Dr Khan explains the pros to being able to hyper focus that come alongside the ADHD brain, and the cons and he shares why it is that ADHD sufferers so often experience depression and anxiety.

Amy shares around how we can optimise our skeletal or bone health across our lifespan, what can we do pre puberty, what can we do as adults and what can we do post menopause and as Amy states MANopause for the blokes in order to ensure we have optimal skeletal health in lower likelihood or mobility associated with low bone density or poor bone health such as osteopenia or osteoporosis.

Amy works alongside former featured expert of the show Professor Belinda Beck. Amy has outputted greater than 20 publications in her burgeoning research career. In one landmark study, which she co collaborated with her Griffith University Research colleagues, Professor Belinda Beck and Associate Professor Ben Weeks was called the LIFTMOR M trial, this trial explored the effects of supervised high intensity resistance and impact training on the bone geometry and strength in middle aged and older men with low bone mass. Amy and her research team at Griffith University Men's Health Institute discovered a real dearth in the literature around the role of exercise in helping men with low bone mass post MANopause. 

Amy outlines the role that exercise plays in terms of adapting our skeletons, the keys in optimizing our skeletal health pre puberty, why it's important to look at maintaining maximising bone health as an adult and then ways that we can fight the decline post menopause or MANopause in terms of our bone health. Amy shares why high intensity low repetition exercise is so important and why high repetition low resistance exercise doesn't produce the same positive results on bone adaptation. Amy encourages us that it is never too late to improve our bone health.

Mike is currently an Assistant Professor in Social Anthropology at Durham University, in compiling Out Of Thin Air, he spent 15 months in Addis Ababa in the surrounding regions of Ethiopia integrating into the running lifestyle and ways of the Ethiopian running culture.

At the time, that was the first gold medal won by a sub-Saharan African and off the back of that the running culture in Ethiopia has really ensued and flourished.

Mike shares around how dreaming is still very much alive in Ethiopia, beliefs around running surfaces, running locations, rest and recovery, fueling, and the curious yet compelling habits of zigzagging when running, avoiding the road and so much more.
