Hello and welcome to Our Athletes! This is a show where I talk with Olympic Athletes and Hopefuls about their story and path to the games. Each one has an incredible story and I was lucky enough to ask them questions about it while having the record button on.I really hope you enjoy it! If you'd like to reach out to me please shoot me an email at michael@ourathletes.us
