Show Notes

In this episode, we have Ben Dyer, a Cambridge University rower and also, someone who had his own Chronic Comeback story.

Ben has been on the news lately for being a member of Cambridge Blue winning the 2021 Oxford vs. Cambridge Boat Race, and how he got inspired by Sir Steve Redgrave’s autobiography to overcome his Crohn’s disease and get himself in the best condition possible to compete.

In this episode, you’ll hear the challenges he faced when he was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s when he returned to the U.K. for further test, the challenges he faced, and his unwavering optimism that he will overcome Crohn’s...and so he did!
