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.
