Olympics Re-Lived: 1996 Atlanta

David was at university, Catherine was 10 and Matt was a baby.

The 1996 Atlanta Olympics saw Michael Johnson dominate, Britain struggle, and some wonderful tennis stories unfold.

In this edition of the podcast we talk to four medallists who had very different stories. From the bittersweet feelings of Gigi Fernandez, to the disbelief of Lindsay Davenport, and a life goal achieved for Leander Paes.

Gigi Fernandez (gold in doubles) - 11m 38s

Lindsay Davenport (gold in singles) - 23m 17s

Sergi Bruguera (silver in singles) - 30m 55s

Leander Paes (bronze in singles) - 37m 01s
