The second episode of Medals & More, the podcast taking you behind the scenes of British Olympic and Paralympic sport is now live.

Hosted by Dame Katherine Grainger, Britain’s most decorated female Olympian and now the Chair of UK Sport, Medals & More brings you the inside scoop on what it’s like being an Olympic or Paralympic athlete.

In this episode, we focus on the record-breaking success of Rio 2016 and look ahead to this summer's Tokyo Games - can Team GB & Para GB equal those achievements?

We hear from Paralympic champions Sir Lee Pearson & John Walker on their goals for the Games and Helen and Kate Richardson-Walsh reveal the secrets behind the success of the British Women's Hockey team that claimed Olympic gold in 2016, four years on from winning bronze at our home games in London.
