Will Moulton presents the first SportSpiel feature interview of 2020 with Olympic bronze medalist Marilyn Okoro and GB T44 Sprinter and Paracanoe athlete Laura Sugar. In this episode The Mintridge Foundation ambassadors and athletes talk about their ambitions to represent Team GB in Tokyo this summer. In our chat Laura explains her transition from hockey to athletics and then to canoeing as a chance viewing at London 2012 made her realise she could actually compete in parasport. We also talk to Marilyn about receiving her bronze medal 10 years after winning it and her career so far and in the future. But both athletes have something in common - they have used the power of no to prove the doubters wrong. The pair also talk about their work with The Mintridge Foundation and the vital role the charity has to play.
