Meet the People Behind the Performances hosted by Micha Powell
Athletics Canada launched a new weekly podcast. People Behind the Performances hosted by Micha Powell. Powell will have conversations with Canadian athletes. Over its six-week run, People Behind the Performances will feature chats about how athletes are coping during COVID-19. The podcast will be available in both English and French.
“Canada’s track and field community comes from diverse backgrounds with equally diverse and powerful stories to tell,” Powell said. “This podcast was created to amplify athlete voices, and to share personal experiences that showcases athletes as much more than bodies for entertainment.”
In the debut episode, Micha Powell talks to shot putter Brittany Crew. Crew won silver at the 2019 Pan American Games. She also won bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The two Olympians discuss training during the pandemic, mental health solutions, body image in track and field, Tokyo Olympic goals and more.
