Stef Reid will compete in the Long Jump for Paralympics GB and she starts this double header. Stef talks about life at the GB preparation camp and dealing with the Covid protocols.

She's been to 3 previous games and draws on her experiences to think about the weeks ahead. She also reveals, because of Covid bubbles, she's unlikely to be able to meet her partner Brent who competes for Canada.

Stef revealed when she was last on the podcast that she was about to study Executive Coaching at Henley Business School - and she talks about what's she's drawing from that.

I also chat to Stef's Loughborough based colleague Thomas Young who's a sprinter. This is the first Games for Thomas and it's great to hear the excitement from a rising star of the sport.
