Off The Blocks with Kai Edwards Ep 7

April 1, 2022

Season 5 Episode 7, we chat to Australia 2020 Tokyo Olympian for the 10km Marathon Swim, Kai Edwards

In this podcast we chat to Kai about his move down Sydney to train with long-time coach Chris Nesbit at Carlile. We discuss the Tokyo hangover after the games and what lead to his decision to come to Sydney from the Gold Coast.

We also discuss his Tokyo experience from his first Olympic games, the atmosphere, the conditions, the flying fish and how he handled it all. As well as some of his favourite sets to help him get ready for those long gruelling events in the open water.

Kai talks us through qualifying for his first games, how the selection process works and how it felt qualifying for his first games over in Portugal.

We also talk Motorbikes, life away from the pool, future aspirations and a whole lot more.
