Listen Out: Olympic Author on TalkSport Radio

Tune in your radios, turn up the volume, and sit back and listen to Richard Witt on the Hawksbee and Jacobs show tomorrow (Wednesday 4th July 2012) on TalkSport Radio between 1pm and 4pm.

Richard, author the Olympic book A Lifetime of Training for Just Ten Seconds, will be talking about the book – a collection of quotations from Olympic athletes and commentators. Inspiring, devastating, and often hilarious, it is a fascinating insight into the Games and its cast of characters. This live radio interview will no doubt be full of the same. Don’t miss it.

The great American discus thrower, Al Oerter, winner of four successive gold medals (1956-1968). For the third of these in Tokyo, he competed despite excruciating pain from a torn rib cartilage, strapped up and iced.

Ever wondered what Olympic Athletes and commentators are really thinking? Read a few sample pages from Richard Witts new book, A Life Time of Training for Just Ten Seconds publishing today.
