Episode 8: Eli Hemming charts his path to Tokyo 2020
Welcome back to another episode of Chasing PB Podcast! This week’s episode feature’s the USA’s Eli Hemming. A long time triathlete and top performer in the US circuit, Eli and I caught up to talk about his personal path to Tokyo, what it looks like, and he was also friendly enough to school me in the path to elite triathlon and what the race circuit specifically looks like. We also talked mixed team relay, which just after this episode, he was a part of the silver medal effort for the US in Abu Dhabi, alongside a top 15 finish individually for a great start to his season. Thanks to Eli for his time and hope you enjoy!

Episode 7: Casper Stornes aims for consistency and Tokyo
This week on Chasing PB I had the opportunity to catch up with Casper Stornes, who is a part of the Norwegian "Big Three." They aren't known as that, but that's what I'm going with. Casper and I had a great chat where he talked about his start in triathlon, what it was like to win in Bermuda, the success that he, Kristian and Gustav had at 70.3 Bahrain, and what he's looking to do in the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics beyond qualifying.

Episode 6: Henri Schoeman Chasing Tokyo 2020
This week on Chasing PB Podcast we have 2016 Rio Bronze medalist, 2018 Commonwealth Games Champion, Henri Schoeman. Before the interview, I dive a bit into the process of qualifying for the 2020 Olympics (link to Brad Culp article here), and also go through the results of the 2019 Cape Town World Cup, which Henri himself competed in, and which was won by Ai Ueda on the women's side, and Alex Yee on the men's side. Henri and I covered a lot of ground in our roughly hour long conversation from his recent engagement, to his plans for different training camps between Namibia and Thailand over the next two years, to discussing pretty much all lengths of triathlon from Super League to Ironman racing in the Olympics, and also where Henri sees non-draft racing fitting into his career. There was a lot more that we unpacked, and I hope you enjoyed this week's episode. Any sort of subscribe on social media (@ChasingPBest) or a review is always appreciated. Tune in next week for episode 7, and episode 2 of the ITU season preview with Casper Stornes!

Based out of Boulder, Colorado and better known as BigMetzTri on social media, Justin's 2018 was one of ups and downs, which we addressed in the episode.

Episode 4: Dan Lorang's Quiet but Noticeable Success
In this episode of Chasing PB Podcast, I interview Dan Lorang. Dan is a coach to Bora Hansgrohe's cycling team that features Peter Sagan, and at the same time he also coaches some names in Ironman triathlon that you may be or will be very familiar with for years to come, including Sarah True, Anne Haug, Nick Kastelein, David McNamee and Jan Frodeno. We talked about Dan's career in this episode, including his time at the Cervelo Test Team, his tenure as head of the German triathlon program for Rio, and in the present how he manages his two jobs and interacts with his athletes. Dan gives great insight into what it's like to handle such high performing athletes, and where he sees himself in the equation of their careers. It's clear that Dan isn't just an exceptional sports scientist, but also incredibly humble and a great communicator which takes him to the next level. If you want to follow Dan's work specifically, you can check him out at @DanLorang on social media. To follow the show, you can follow @ChasingPBest.
