Olympian Alex Yee: From Traumatic Injury to Going for Gold in Paris 2024
What's it like going from being at the top of your sporting game and prepping for your A-Levels... to being bed bound with multiple injuries?
For Tokyo 2020 Olympic gold medalist and Paris 2024 front-runner, Alex Yee, it was a light-bulb moment that led him to push the limits of human potential, leaving a trail of inspiration in his wake.
In this episode, Alex sits down with fellow Olympian and Amazing Starts Here host, Sam Quek, for a look into life behind the medals. From failing in a fun bet with fellow triathlete and girlfriend, Olivia Mathias and becoming friends with his heroes the Brownlee brothers... to a remarkable recovery and training with the support of National Lottery players who raise £30 million for good causes in the UK every week.
