It's time for your first taste of canoe slalom on the show today as we chat with Aussie Olympic canoeist Daniel Watkins to learn more about his sport as well as his incredible career so far! We find out from Dan how growing up in Tassie helped him get into the sport and just why the wilderness of Tasmania is a great place to train. We also find out about the training techniques involved and the unique course designs that go into canoe slalom. Added to this we find out about his Olympic experiences, the attention that he got after being labelled "the Brad Pitt of canoeing" and just how he had to avoid his phone for a little bit after he competed at the Olympic Games. It's a great chat that you definitely won't want to miss!
