World hurdles champion and acclaimed new author Perdita Felicien will cover track and field events at the Tokyo Olympics.
In the Player’s Own Voice podcast, she shares her take on the racing days ahead at these Summer Games.
Spoiler alert: There are no firm predictions on who will win the women’s 100m final, but a lot of confidence that this particular race will be a race for the ages.
FÃ©licien is also obsessed with beach volleyball and weightlifting events. Proof that when it comes to the Olympics, everyone has their favorite sport to binge on.
Podcast host Anastasia Bucsis can’t help but probe some of the still raw stories from Perdita’s book, My mother’s daughter.
The book details both the runway star and her mother’s childhood, as well as the precarious circumstances they managed to overcome as they fled poverty, abuse and uncertainty.
Perdita tells a story as she runs: fast, powerful and in control.
Player’s Own Voice will run throughout the Tokyo Olympics, dropping episodes every day or two. Intimate conversations with athletes at the peak of their careers.
Like CBC Sports’ Player’s Own Voice essay series, the POV podcast allows athletes to talk to Canadians about issues from a personal perspective. To listen to Season 4 in full, subscribe for free on Spotify, iTunes, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Tune In, or wherever you listen to your other podcast.
