Max#19: David Weir – Great Britain’s most successful wheelchair racer

The latest episode to be uploaded to the Maximise Potential Podcast is an incredibly inspiring interview with David Weir, Great Britain’s Top Wheelchair Racer who has completely re-written the record books within the sport.

This phenomenal racer has won four London Marathons, three of those consecutively. At the 2008 Beijing Paralympics, he won two golds, a silver and a bronze. He holds every single British record from the sprints to the marathon, plus numerous world records AND to top it all off he has an MBE.

Yet when I had the opportunity to meet with David after his regular morning training session in Richmond Park, I was taken aback by how down-to-earth and humble he is – and how different the off-the-track David Weir is to the on-the-track person.

Here is our unique opportunity to learn more about the highs and lows of David’s career, what drives him to be a winner and his goals for London 2012 and beyond.
