Today's guest is Hannah Cockroft, wheelchair racer for Paralympics GB.

Hannah has won 11 world titles and 5 Paralympic gold medals and she talks about the weight of expectation as she heads to her third Games.

She talks brilliantly about the moment she discovered sport and what it's taken to get to be top of the world.

And she now embraces the fact she is a role model and loves the thought of others being inspired to take up some sport.

Hannah says she is still loving sport and feels lucky to have the opportunities to compete. She says lockdown has shown that we need to make the most of every single second.

Thanks Hannah! Great chat.
