On the surface, competing as a runner seems straight forward: the winner of a race is the fastest person from point A to point B, and to progress, you just have to be a better runner than everyone else. Right?
Turns out, it’s not so simple. Fairness is a surprisingly complicated concept.
On this episode we bring you the story of two athletes — a “ghost runner” from the U.K. and a phenom from Uganda — and we explore how rules meant to ensure fairness can end up excluding some of the best athletes from competitions.
Growing up with a rare bone condition, Will Cox was constantly in and out of hospitals — and constantly fearful of the world around him.
The fear eventually took over his life, controlling almost everything he did. And that’s probably the way his future would have played out, had it not been for a mountain bike.
On this episode, Tanya Chawla brings us Will’s story.
