60 Callum Skinner - Track Cycling Olympic Champion

Track Cycling Olympic Champion Callum Skinner joins us on the Best in the World with Richard Parr this week.

Callum took gold as part of the British team that won the Team Sprint at the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro. Callum also claimed silver in the individual event, losing to his roommate in Rio Jason Kenny.

We talk about how he coped being in the same apartment as the man he had to face in the final.

Also on the programme Callum discusses finding a lump on his neck that was initially feared to be cancerous but fortunately wasn’t. He also talks about his start in cycling, his training sessions and why it was important that both of his parents watched him win his gold medal.

There’s a lot to learn from Callum Skinner on this week’s show.
