S.1 EP.5 Barry 'Baz' Gray - Spencer Smith
A British-born triathlete, Spencer Smith is a triple World Champion triathlete turned triathlon coach and one of only a handful of athletes to have consistently succeeded on the biggest stage at both short- and long-course distance triathlon. His triathlete and sports career record is exemplary. Spencer Smith has won over half of all the races he has ever competed in – a phenomenal statistic that is almost unparalleled in the sport of triathlon. At the age of 20, Spencer became the youngest-ever World and European Champion. He was then the first male triathlete to win consecutive Senior World Championships (1993 and 1994) in addition to his Junior World Championship in 1992. In recent years, Spencer Smith has trimmed down his race schedule in order to prepare for the next stage of his remarkable career, which will include expanding his multi-sport athlete and triathlon coaching company called “S2Coaching”. The aim of S2Coaching is simple – to help multi-sport athletes, all of varying abilities, develop and reach their potential through world-class training. Along with this, Spencer is also assisting companies with triathlon-related marketing promotions and motivational staff programs. Contact: spencersmith@coachingS2.com

Dean Stott is a former British Special Forces Soldier who left the military after suffering a severe knee injury in a parachuting accident in 2011. He then established a distinguished career in the private security sector; he was renowned for his willing to take on any job, no matter how dangerous. However, in 2016 Dean was ready for a new project and wanted to use this to help others. He began training to cycle the longest motorable road in the world – The Pan American Highway. Dean completed the 14,000 mile route from Argentina to Alaska in May 2018, gaining two world records and raising an incredible amount of money for charity in the process. www.deanstott.com

S.1 EP.2 Baz Gray with Wendy Searle
Host Baz Gray talks to Antarctica adventurer Wendy Searle about her epic solo expedition to the South Pole. The world needs more adventurous women. Role models with the courage to pursue an idea. To see challenges not barriers. To say goodbye to their children for a while to go out into the world in search of the wind in their face, the mountain ahead, with broken nails and unwashed hair. To show the next generation that you need to get out there, to take your slice of the action, write your name in the story. And those women adventurers will show that you can do that at school, at work and at home; you can take risks, you can be responsible for your own destiny, you can choose your path.
