🏅 I'm starting to get excited about the upcoming summer Olympics!! My favorite Olympic sport is gymnastics and I always try to learn a little bit about the athletes a head of time because it makes watching the games way more interesting.
I recently found a new podcast @flamebearers where women olympians/paralympians from different sports all over the world share their back stories, goals, struggles and what it's really like to be a top woman athlete. Considering female athletes don't ever seem to get the best coverage and you typically have to hunt around to find their stories I love how I've found a place where I can just kick back and listen to these podcast episodes and learn all about them.
There are currently over 20 episodes and so far my favorite is about sprinter Kimberly Alkemade from the Netherlands because it touched on the importance of mental health, resilience and recovery. 🏅 If you plan to watch the summer Olympics then check out the #flamebearers podcast for some back stories to get to know some of the athletes ahead of time > flamebearerspodcast.com
