Brought to you by host Dan Wallis, episode 8 of the Runner’s Tribe podcast is with a renowned physiotherapist and host of the physical performance show, Brad Beer.

 

Brad has been treating athletes for over 15 years and in that time has worked with some of the biggest names in distance running. Given Brad’s expertise, we dove into topics such as biomechanical impacts caused by carbon plated shoes, key areas of strength that are often overlooked and underappreciated by runners, and early signs and symptoms of common running-related injuries.

 

If you enjoy this chat with Brad, we would love it if you left us a 5-star review to help us increase the reach of this podcast.  Also, if you have anything specific that you’d love to ask Brad, we will be doing a follow-up Q and A with your questions.

Keely Small on Injury, Enjoying Life and Becoming an Oregon Duck

Keely Small is Australia’s fastest ever junior 800m runner with a PB of 2:00.81, set at only 16 years-of-age whilst racing at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.  A prodigious talent, Small has a whopping 8 junior Australian 800m titles to her name (U10 to U18) – and many more if you include all-schools. She also won numerous 1500m junior titles, and medalled at every single junior National cross-country championship up until the age of U17.

Loaded with talent, Keely suffered an L5 stress fracture in March of 2021, just when her Olympic campaign was heating up. After taking some time out to consider her future, Small has recently signed with the Oregon Ducks, and will depart Australian shores in January of 2022, to follow in the footsteps of Jessica Hull, and chase her glory in America.

We caught up with Keely and dived deep into the decision to move to America, her injuries, training and heaps more…

EPISODE 6: OLYMPIAN | CHARLIE HUNTER

August 18, 2021

When Charlie Hunter clocked 1:44.35 for  800m in June of 2021, Runner’s Tribe published an article titled “Charlie Hunter has Arrived”.  But in many ways, we were wrong with that claim; those who have been watching Hunter closely will tell you that he has been a weapon for some time now.

July 16, 2021

Jenny Blundell has been one of Australia’s biggest middle-distance talents for many years now.  A crazy talented junior, she is one of the rare few who has been able to convert her junior talent into success as an adult.  She made the semi-finals for the 1500m at the 2016 Rio Olympics and is set to toe the line in the 5000m at the upcoming Games in Tokyo. 

We caught up with Jenny as she puts the final touches on her Olympic preparations…

EPISODE 4: TOKYO BOUND | JEFF RISELEY

July 2, 2021

In 2007, a young Jeff Riseley qualified for the world athletics championships in Osaka. It marked the arrival of Jeff Riseley on the international scene. Since then, Jeff has gone on to compete at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympics.  Jeff is the 5th fastest man in Australian history over the  800m, mile and 1500m.  Remarkably, at 34 years of age Jeff is not done. A few weeks ago, in a stacked 800m in Poland, Riseley smashed down the home straight to stop the clock at 1:44.83, well inside the Olympic standard. Riseley is off to his 4th Olympics.  Long time supporter and friend, Len Johnson, caught up with Jeff to discuss his career, comeback and heaps more… 

EPISODE 3: DOMINATING FORM | OLLI HOARE

EPISODE 3: DOMINATING FORM | OLLI HOARE

May 12, 2021

This episode is sponsored by ON Running

Australian men’s 1500m running is hot right now. And in amongst it, is Olli Hoare. Hailing from Caringbah, in Sydney, Olli moved to America post high school, and raced for Wisconsin.   He forged  an awesome collegiate career , including an outdoor 1500m NCAA title. 

2020 marked Olli’s first year as a pro athlete, and he did not mess around. But 2021 has been the year that Olli emerged as a true threat in global 1500m running. So far as of May 11, 2021,   Olli has clocked three Olympic standards over 1500m, wining all three of those races in dominate fashion.  First there was a  3:32 indoor 1500m in New York in February, where Olli set a new Australian indoor 1500m record and clocked the 7th fastest indoor time in history .  He showed it was no fluke a few months later when he clocked a 3:33 to dominate in Oregon. Then he stepped up at Mt Sac, and dominated again, clocking another 3:33. With the Tokyo Olympics approaching, we caught up with Olli and dived deep into pretty much anything we could think of…

EPISODE 2: JAKE WIGHTMAN, 2ND FASTEST UK 1500M ALL-TIME (SUB 3:30)

April 23, 2021

Jake Wightman made running history at the 2020 Monaco Diamond League. On that starry night in August, 26-year-old Wightman snuck under the 3:30 barrier over 1500, clocking 3:29.47. Surpassing the likes of Seb Coe, Steve Ovett and Steve Cram, now only Mo Farah sits above him on the UK all-time list; Jake Wightman has arrived. With a 1:44 800m to his name, Wightman possesses the speed needed to succeed at the top level. We caught up with Jake and chatted about pretty much everything we could muster; from his altitude training to a hypothetical boxing match against Stewart McSweyn.....
