Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Broken Oars Podcast!
It's often been said, usually by us, that Broken Oars Podcast is the home of world-class rowing and rowers on the web ...
... and we prove it yet again in this episode as we are joined by the one, the only, the incredible ...
For those of you have been living under a rock, Eli is the world-class rowing athlete who has been tearing up the record book since starting in the sport barely two years ago.
Eli joins us for a chat about her sporting background, how she got into indoor rowing, and her transition to the water.
Hardly covering ourselves with interviewing technique glory, Lewin and I basically fanboy gush over an incredible person and athlete who had smashed several world records immediately before our conversation. We explore the vital importance of good and supportive coaching in Eli's journey, the pressures young athletes face regarding body image, weight and performance, and look at where Eli's rowing journey might take her next (we suggested Henley Royal and Henley Women's, but that's just us ...).
We've always been blessed with amazing guests on Broken Oars Podcast, but that's largely because we talk to rowers ... who are, basically, amazing people.
And Eli is one of us.
Just considerably faster than most of us.
