The Olympian with a broken leg ... 

Ben Fletcher

Is currently trying to ensure he qualifies for Tokyo Olympics, in a recent tournament he snapped his leg and now has to recover watching others trying to out-qualify him.

In this episode we discuss: 

  • His leg (obviously)
  • What it is like for athletes at the competition during Covid. 
  • Trying to get to training events and competitions. 
  • Being deselected for London 2012. 
  • Fighting for Ireland. 

I want to thank Ben for an honest and fair interview and I wish him the best of luck with his qualification and recovery.
