Listen now
Description
This is a brilliant chat with a brilliant athlete! Calum Johnson is a British triathlete who was Non Stanford's training partner in the run up to the Rio Olympics. Calum is a fine triathlete in his own right, with numerous podiums on the European Cup circuit.

It's a really honest and engaging chat about high performance, trying to scrape a living in the sport, being happy, baking, and the ups and downs of being a triplet.
