Arete talks with Beth Potter and Chris 'Macca' McCormack.
One of the projects I set myself in lockdown was to create a series of Podcasts/Zoom calls with Pro-Athletes and offer an insight into their journey of how they became high performing athletes and the lessons they learned along the way.
I am delighted to announce that we can announce our first two athletes who have agreed to come on.
First is British 10,000m Olympian and now a rising star on the triathlon Stage - Beth Potter.
Following Beth will be one of endurance sports most iconic athletes and 4 Time World Champion Chris' Macca' McCormack.
We are very excited and extremely grateful that both these athletes have agreed to take time out and speak to us.
Beth Potter Friday 2nd October @ 1900.

2017 was an incredible debut triathlon year for Beth, and her running ability proved to be priceless in the Funchal Sprint Triathlon European Cup when she was able to come back from a minute behind at the start of the run leg to eventually complete the race in first place.
In 2018, Beth made history by becoming the first Scottish Athlete to compete in two sports at the Commonwealth Games.
