Season 11 of the Outside & Active Podcast kicks off in style with special guest and Olympic great, Sir Chris Hoy
Sir Chris is one of Great Britain’s most successful Olympic athletes, with six gold medals and one silver.
Chris won his first Olympic gold medal in Athens 2004 in the Kilo – an event that was dropped from the programme for Beijing 2008. Chris took this in his stride and switched his focus to three other track sprint events – the Keirin, Sprint and Team Sprint. He went on to win a gold medal in all three at the Beijing Olympics, cementing his name in the history books.
He was voted 2008 BBC Sports Personality of the Year and was awarded a Knighthood in the 2009 New Year Honours list.
In this episode we talk about the psychological side of sport, part of the reason Chris was so successful.
