Urban Swaras 10th August – a champion on your screens

Dear Swaras, 

I hope your muscles have recovered from last week’s workout with Elvis. This week we’re not going to be working up a sweat, we’re going to be learning how a champion works up a gold medal sweat! Check out some highlights from the week in this week’s Starting Line:

That’s in this week’s An Audience With…

Douglas Wakiihuri.

In the 1980s Douglas Wakiihuri astonished the world by triumphing in the world marathon championships as a relative unknown, and he went on to win gold at the Olympics, win the London Marathon (twice), the Commonwealth Games, and SO much more. We hear about his path to success, and his vision for the future of Kenyan running.

Be sure to tune in Wednesday 12th August at the slightly later time of 6.30pm on Zoom.
