#41 - Craig Engels - 2 Weeks Until The Olympic Trials

Craig Engels. The man. The legend. Craig Engels joins the Sweat Elite podcast two weeks before one of the biggest days of his life - the USA Olympic Trials in which he has his sights set on qualifying for the Tokyo Olympic Games in the 1500m (and possibly 800m). Craig Engels, for those unfamiliar, is one of USA's fastest middle distance runners with personal bests of 1:44.68 (800m), 3:33.64 (1500m) and 3:51.6 (Mile). He is the 2019 USA national champion over 1500m and hopes to add another national title to the resume in a couple of weeks. What makes Craig so unique is his approach to his profession in prioritising having fun and being happy over anything else. Tune into this episode to hear Engels discuss this idea in depth.
