#EveryRoadtoRio Diaries: Hard At Work

Published 6 May 2016

Ever been curious about the life of an athlete? Puzzled over how painful their gym sessions are? Wondered what goes on during downtime? Or considered how many eggs they are actually eating for breakfast?

UK Sport might just be able to help with some of those questions, as we launch our exciting new series of video diaries, taking you behind the scenes with a group of National Lottery supported athletes in the build up to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro later this summer.

Throughout the series, which will run up until the start of the Games, the athletes will share with you first-hand their emotions, experiences and insights as they prepare for the biggest fortnight of their lives. In part two of the series, it's another day in the office for GB's athletes but there's no 9-to-5s here. See what it takes to stay ahead of the game in the video below.
