Today, heptathlete Georgia Ellenwood joins the podcast to talk with Christina about the postponement of Tokyo 2020, finding confidence and how she really feels about social media.

Georgia is a jack of all trades when it comes to track and field, participating in the heptathlon, the women’s version of the decathlon. While seven events might make your head spin, it’s where she excels, having won the 2018 NCAA Division 1 title in the event while attending the University of Wisconsin. But it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for Georgia as she’s dealt with a few injuries throughout her career. But Georgia says those injuries helped her find the confidence she needed and realized she had to take charge of what she wanted to happen in life.

That mindset led to her first major deal; a contract with Under Armour Canada, and chance at making her Olympic debut with Team Canada at Tokyo 2020. In today’s episode, Georgia talks about the stress of the games being postponed and the impact it has on her career trajectory.

Today, Georgia discusses how the break due to COVID-19 has had a some positives as she’s been able to hone her passion as an artist, connect with her social media followers more regularly and reconnect with friends and family. She also shares her thoughts on how scary the transition from college to career can be and what she’d like to see change when it comes women’s combined events.

We also talk about:

  • Tokyo Olympics
  • Transition from college to career
  • Her passion for art
  • The importance of being body positive
  • NCAA

Quote:

“I think I blamed a lot of my insecurities or doubts about my ability on external things, and so I thought those things were happening to me instead of me blocking them out or creating change. And I think when I realized I was in charge with what I wanted to happen…that’s when I started to be more active about it, and that really helped.”

99. Georgia Ellenwood, Heptathlete

Play
Read more

Hundred-meter hurdles, high jump, shot put,  200-meter run (day one). Running long (broad) jump, javelin throw, and 800-meter run (day two). All those events: One. Superstar. Athlete. For episode 99 (!!) I’m chatting with Georgia Ellenwood, heptathlete and Olympic hopeful. We sat down earlier this year at the Under Armour Human Performance Summit, and let me tell you — for a woman in her mid-20s, Georgia is wise beyond her years (also: stunning both inside and out). On today’s show, we talk about everything from what life was like for her growing up in the Vancouver area, crossing the border to go to college at the University Wisconsin, and the struggles she’s had along the way in her athletic career so far. We also touch on what was a major #hurdlemoment for her, dropping out of a track meet part-way through due to a bad case of plantar fasciitis, and how she didn’t let that one “failure” define her.
