Alasdair Hooper hosts this SportSpiel feature interview with Middlesex and Scotland cricketer Olivia Rae. Life in coronavirus lockdown has had an impact on everyone, but what happens when you’ve put so much effort towards achieving your dream of playing your sport professionally and then this happens? On this edition of the podcast, Olivia takes us through exactly that. After working so hard towards becoming a professional player everything is now on hold thanks to the current situation we all find ourselves in But this is just a small part of the conversation on this episode, as Olivia takes us through the mental health and anxiety battles she has gone through over the last few years. She’s in a positive place now, but that wasn’t the case a few months back. Here she details what happened to her and – more importantly – how she managed to build herself a support network to help herself out of it.
