Getting There

Getting There, written and sung by Boo Hewerdine, asks what makes an Olympic Athlete? Hear how hard work, dedication and sacrifice work alongside talent to make the best sportsperson.

Munich’s darling Olga Korbut, US swimmers Lenny Krayzelburg and John Naber and Israeli sailor Vered Bouskila, who is aiming for gold in London, explain how their gruelling training routines often overshadowed their lives but the possibility of a gold medal always pushed them further.
