1st assignment for Olympic Storytellers

Well, what questions would you ask the Brownlee brothers, British Olympic hopefuls in the triathlon? And how do I choose …?

This is my first assignment as an official Olympic Storyteller:

World champion triathletes and London 2012 medal-hopefuls, Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee, have agreed to be interviewed …. send in your questions and they will pick twenty of their favourites to answer. The answers will go live on the BT Storytellers website when it launches on 14th July. You can send a maximum of three questions – one of your questions must be related to London 2012, whereas the other two can be about anything at all!

Here were some of the ideas I came up with:

  • What advice would you give my daughter (who is an amateur triathlete doing much shortened distances)?
  • Which is the hardest discipline – swimming, cycling or running?
  • If you could switch the order of events, how would you change the order and why?
  • What music would you choose to train to?
  • What food do you eat for maximum energy benefit?
  • If you could have a rest from training for a week (with no consequences), what would you do?
  • What is your favourite colour?
  • If you could choose to travel to a different planet, moon or star, where would you go?
  • How would you cope with being sex symbols?
  • Does sport unify or divide nations?
  • What achievement are you proudest of to date?
  • Who is your most feared competitor?

In reality, I chose three different questions. More later ….
