Sprint queens, step aside (for one week only, please; we still adore you): the jump queens are in town, and it's been a total hoot.

When we say 'in town', we mean on a Zoom call with us, for a lockdown special featuring two of our favourite Team GB athletes - the wonderful Morgan Lake and Jazmin Sawyers. Not only are these two international medallists, articulate podcast guests, and major fans of the sport itself, but they're regular listeners to this show, and so it was a no-brainer to get them on for a chat.

Topics covered include: Christian Coleman's latest whereabouts palaver (by the time you read this, he's probably blocked all of us on Twitter (although it should be noted that Jody and Bayo have actually been blocked by the geographically-challenged World Champ for almost a year already)); the recent statement by the IOC confirming that athletes will not be permitted to take a knee at the Games; adapting as athletes to the challenge of training during lockdown; their targets for the 2021 season; and a smattering of other goodies, too.

Essentially: it was an hour and a half of glorious conversation, and we're ever so grateful to the pair of them for their time.

As mentioned in a chaotic final few minutes, we've been nominated for an award! Vote for us, if you fancy, here: https://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote

As per, you can get in touch with us (and, indeed, we actively encourage that you do so) in all the usual places: @Claire_GThomas, @BackstraightB, @Morgan_A_Lake, and @JazminSawyers

Thanks for listening!
