Ireland’s greatest athlete gives us a masterclass in how to respond to setbacks, failures and unforeseen problems. After a week where Sonia asked all our listeners to see how high they could climb, a month when Ireland has struggled to see light in the darkness and a year when everyone has been forced to dig deep, there really has never been a better time to talk about resilience. Jarlath goes deep into Sonia’s Olympic past to find out how she learned to respond during her darkest moments and why speed was the key.
