Aug 22, 2019 Season 1 Episode 52
Backstraight Boys (& Girl)

Claire's away 'doing rugby in France' (close enough, lads; she's been in both Portugal and West London, and is now - terrified - hitting 'publish' on an episode the boys promise needs only a cursory tidy up in edit...), leaving Jody and Bayo to look ahead to this weekend's British Championships. 
 
Last year, we all agreed that the trials were one of our favourite events of the season: brimming with fierce competition, high-quality contests, and the very best of British athletics. Beth Dobbin's post-race interview. Dina's championship record. A women's long jump in which 6.69 didn't even get you a medal. Matthew Hudson-Smith's 400m dominance. Laura Muir's 800m cameo. Glorious weather, even.
 
If this year's anything like as exciting as last, then we're all in for a doozy. That said, we've just been challenged to a 4x400 race by Trackastic, with Kath Merry already offering to commentate, and Beth Dobbin keen to complete our quartet, so the British Champs can only actually be the second best competition of the season, even if they are majestic...
 
Thanks for listening. Thanks for reviewing. Thanks for following us on Twitter (@BackstraightB & @Claire_GThomas) and Insta (@BackstraightBoysPodcast). Wait - what do you mean you've not yet done the last two of those?? Remedy that immediately, please. Much better.
