In this episode, Niraj welcomes Great Britain’s Olympian, Stewart Innes. Stewart and Niraj discuss how he came through a tough group of rowers and got selected to race at the Rio Olympics, where he finished fourth and narrowly missed out on a medal. Stewart also reflects on the injury setback he had after Rio and how that paved way for what he considers his biggest accomplishment - overcoming his injury to compete again. Stewart also shares how the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 forced him into early retirement and how he has since transitioned to working on his new venture, The Athlete Mindset (https://www.theathletemindset.co.uk/).
Zenkai Sports Partnership - "The Gifted?" is now sponsored by Zenkai Sports, the new disruptor in the performance apparel world. Zenkai utilises a brand-new technology that repels liquids, keeping you cooler during intense activity as the sweat evaporates naturally off your skin. This allows you to regulate body temperature easily and push yourself harder as Zenkai clothing harnesses the power of your sweat. Sweat is our friend, keep it on you! Zenkai Sports is also the only performance apparel company that is cotton-based. All of their gear is over 65% cotton with some pieces over 95%. Cotton is bio-degradable, feels great against your skin and is much better for our environment than synthetic-based apparel.
