Welcome! Episode #40: Morgan P. Campbell

Morgan P. Campbell

Earlier this month all eyes were on Rio, Brazil as the best athletes competed in the latest edition of the Summer Games. In a few episodes I’m going to speak with Georgia Sapounas. Georgia is the digital team lead for Team Canada and was my guest on Episode #28. When Georgia comes back from her vacation after the Olympics she’ll be joining me in studio to chat about Team Canada’s athletes.

Today I speak with the award-winning writer from the Toronto Star, Morgan Campbell. Morgan is a returning guest of the podcast. He made his first appearance on Episode #18.

Today, instead of talking about how Canada fared against the world’s best, we talk about how the media covered these games.

Rio 2016 Olympic Moment: Evan Dunfee

Rio Olympics

Everyone loves the Olympics. Even the harshest critics among us can find a feel good human story once in a while. As we all experience the Olympics I’ll attempt to share a favourite moment.

Speed walking usually earns some snickering and double takes. However, these are amazing athletes just like many others in Rio, Brazil. Canada’s Evan Dunfee is one of our elite athletes. And he is also a leader in the speed walking community.

Rio 2016 Olympic Moment: Nikki Hamblin and Abbey D’Agostino

Nikki Hamblin and Abbey D'Agostino

Everyone loves the Olympics. Even the harshest critics among us can find a feel good human story once in a while. As we all experience the Olympics I’ll attempt to share a favourite moment.

Nikki Hamblin and Abbey D’Agostino are both middle distance runners competing in Brazil this summer. During their 5000 metre qualifying race Nikki and Abbey collided with Abbey bearing the brunt of the collision. What followed was what we all hope for (deep down at least). They showed what we like to call “Olympic spirit”.
