Olympian, Wellness Consultant and RTÉ Analyst David Gillick joined us this morning as part of the launch of the European Week of Sport.

We spoke about:

  • The challenge of presenting from the Olympic Games in Tokyo when all the best-laid plans of interviews and more on the roof overlooking the City were taken away by Covid;
  • How he coped with knowing enough but not getting too technical;
  • What it was like waiting patiently for security to check the cameraman beside him on entry to the arena as the seconds ticked down to his being live to the nation;
  • And finally and perhaps most informatively, about the thinking that goes into his post-race interviews and the best advice he got being ‘don’t prepare.’
