In this week's episode, we speak to Luke Patience. Olympic Silver Medalist, two-time olympian and he has already gained selection for Tokyo 2021.
We hear about Luke's upbringing from humble beginnings moving around Scotland to his meteoric rise through the ranks as part of the illustrious British Sailing Team program. He shares his passion for Sailing and how it aligned well with his competitive and adventurous nature growing up. 
Luke's first significant success came in London 2012 where he won an unexpected silver medal at his first Olympic Games. He successfully dealt with the huge pressure of a home Olympic Games.
In 2016 Luke was aiming one higher, Olympic Gold. However, this goal was quickly put into perspective when his teammate was diagnosed with cancer forcing a last-minute substitution in a sport that's so tactical and where you need to be able to read your teammate's next move. Luke shares his reflections upon a very exhausting and emotionally charged Olympics.
Luke is now focusing on Tokyo 2021, having gained selection. Could this be Luke's final Olympics and an opportunity to achieve his life long dream of winning gold?
