The Breakdown with Orla Chennaoui and Greg Rutherford


Greg Rutherford

Season 1, Ep. 9

To mark the end of Series One of The Breakdown, Orla Chennaoui puts co-host Greg Rutherford in the interviewee seat for a special bonus episode...

In what could be a therapy session, the 2012 Olympic champion looks back in candour on the childhood experiences which propelled him into the world of sport and shares the sliding doors moment when as a tearaway teenager, he could have died ‘car surfing’.

We take a deep dive into the trials and tribulations of his career, and explore the chip on his shoulder that drove - and still drives - him to strive for more… “I think no matter what walk of life you’re in and what you’ve done - be it in sport, business, whatever it is - you can try new things and challenge yourself”.
