Episode 923: Bolt Bows Out, Joel Stransky on Pro12 Becoming Pro14, Neymar’s Decision
The IAAF World Athletics Championships start in London this Friday, the last ever appearance on the track for Usain Bolt. Derval O’Rourke talks to us about her impressions of Bolt, why she’s hoping for a shock on Saturday evening in the 100m final, and the Irish athletes she’s hoping to see set PBs and reach finals.
She also talks to us about Doctor Hans Muller Wohlfahrt, a doctor who is no stranger to controversy – who Bolt has seen on multiple occasions, is the German national football team doctor, and who is someone Derval has a lot personal experience with as well.
1995 Rugby World Cup winner Joel Stransky joins us on the line to talk about the Pro12 becoming the Pro14 with the addition of two South African franchises, and we go on a voyage of discovery to find out just who played the role of Joel in ‘Invictus’.
Ken just can’t understand Neymar’s decision to leave Barcelona, Eoin can’t believe Usain Bolt’s GAA-style motivations, and Colin Jackson anticipates shedding a tear or two.
