Nicolas Massu and Anne-Marie Batson: The National Hero
Sport and the Feels
The South American nation of Chile is passionate about sport, Chilean Rodeo and Football mainly, basketball too, but, weirdly, it had never won an Olympic Gold Medal before 2004. Step forward Nicolas Massu, a tennis player of high-regard but unfancied for the Athens Olympic Tennis event. As you'll hear, he didn't even fancy himself. But in tandem with friend Fernando Gonzalez, he won the doubles Gold Medal in five sets, finishing in the early hours of the Sunday morning, returning to centre court after two drug tests, a short sleep and five more sets, to win the singles Gold Medal. Nicolas tells of his abysmal record going into Athens but how the pride of representing Chile hauled him through. He paints the picture of a delirious scene in Santiago when he returns a national hero, millions waiting in the streets. Anne-Marie Batson is alongside host Jonathan Overend for episode fourteen, in association with Aldi UK, official supermarket partner of Team GB. They discuss tennis' place at the Olympic table and Jonathan recalls first-hand the dramatic contrast between Andy Murray's attitude in Beijing and then at London 2012. Plus, how much notice did Nico get before carrying the Chile flag at the 2000 Opening Ceremony? What's that you say?! No, much less...

Anne-Marie Batson is alongside host Jonathan Overend for Episode Four, in association with Aldi UK, official supermarket partner of Team GB. They chat about sibling rivalry, psychology of failure and Tom's unofficial role as an ambassador for LGBT athletes, not just in track and field but across all sport.
