Follow sporting stories and learn English along the way.


Alistair Brownlee's Physiotherapist

Welcome to Talking Sport!

Every athlete has a team of people supporting them through their training.

This week we meet a physiotherapist who helps world triathlete champion Alistair Brownlee.

As Alistair's physiotherapist, Emma Deakin helps prevent and treat his muscle injuries.

Join Natalie in this week's video to learn about the words 'achieved' and 'rewarding' and hear from Emma.

      In August I took part in an open water event in Belgium. Damme-Bruges is a well-known international swim meeting. Everybody can take part both in competition and recreationally. I achieved in breast stroke the finishline. The water temperature was less than 20°C. The hard (long distance) training was very rewarding for me.

      I've achieved to speak and read three foreign languages, among them English, and I find it rewarding. At the same time, of course, it doesn'n mean that I am at the end of learning.

      When I spoke to the English-speaking man the first time in my life, and he understood me, I felt really rewarding. I hope I will have more such pleasant moments which help me to achieve more in learning English.

I think the only thing to change knowledge between people from different countries is the English language. With it we can do a world revolution without politics neither religious but only using the Science.
