One of the biggest sports on the planet, soccer (or football) has played a central role in the life of our guest on today’s show. Chris Bright was raised in a town just outside of Birmingham in the UK. A kid who never sat still, Chris spent much of his childhood kicking around a ball. A shy kid, Chris developed a bit of a chip on his shoulder after being diagnosed with T1D at the age of 8. We talk about a defining moment with a pediatric nurse at the time of his diagnosis, and the importance of having a person in our lives who pulls down any potential for barriers at the start of a challenging journey. We discuss the support of his family, we discuss the challenges associated with figuring out his body to enable him to perform at the highest levels on the field of play, and we talk about the importance of the continued focus on the quality of perseverance in any aspect of life. Chris also shares some details about the next stage of his journey including the formation of The Diabetes Football Community, and the first all type 1 futsal team. If you’re an athlete, or if you’re simply looking for inspiration and guidance to help you on your path in athletics, this is a ‘must listen to’ episode of the podcast.
