I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Esther Lofgren, our newest Champion Ambassador. Esther was a member of the gold-winning Women’s 8 USA rowing team at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Last week she took time from her busy schedule of training and volunteering to be a guest for The Foundation for Global Sports Development’s very first podcast. In this interview Esther shares with us her tips for international travel and competition, talks about life as an Olympic gold medalist, and tells us her story of a surprising outcome to a last minute marathon.
Thanks for allowing me to interview you, Esther! We look forward to continuing to work with you to promote healthy sport in youth across the world.
