Hosts of popular ironman based podcast IMTalk John Newsom and Bevan James Eyles, have launched their new podcast “Legends of Triathlon <http://www.
The first episode of Legends of Triathlon features an interview with multiple World Champion triathlete Spencer Smith. For those involved in the sport in the mid 90’s the man needs no introduction. In 1993 Smith won the elite world ITU Championships in his first year out of the junior ranks and backed that up with another title the following year in dominating fashion. In 1998 Smith’s world was rocked by the death of his father followed by a drugs scandal which was ultimately thrown out at the court of arbitration for sport. Listen in to one of the true characters of the sport telling his story in his words.
“Legends of Triathlon” is an off shoot of the IMTalk podcast which was establish in 2006 by Eyles and Newsom. Over the last five years, and nearly 300 shows later, the IMTalk community has grown enormously driven by “their weekly fix in all things ironman”. The light-hearted show features weekly news, coaching advice, age groupers of the week, history lessons along with plenty of content submitted by the listening community. Arguably the most popular shows are the in-depth coverage at the Ironman World Champs and regular interviews with the biggest stars of the sport such as Chris McCormack, Chrissie Wellington, Craig Alexander, Dave Scott, Mirinda Carfrae and many many more.
