"Saifi the paralympics. Starting on monday after a lot of upheaval and doubts that that even go ahead. It must've been such a relief for you to find out you're going to tokyo after all. Yeah it was well. I mean we got selected at the end of may. So i knew from the end of may the i was selected to go but actually making it on the fly was another another story. Because you know we've got covert that's looming over us all the time and then the moment of watching the olympics and i think it becomes real at the closing ceremony of the olympics. Because then it's like right. There's nothing else to watch everything. Stone when next is staggering to think that it was only in twenty twelve before the london olympics that you just started getting into wheelchair basketball and when you look back to that time the paralympics were in a very different place. How much you think. Public perception has changed. They were massively. But since then i think there was a massive spike. Initially after linden the paralympics were seen as equal. I think that's all well and good in those moments but actually for disability sport. You don't see our sport especially wheelchair basketball. You know any other time really. The coverage is in great our even our world championships and european championships. Out streamed as well as i personally think they should ban are probably biased but one in four people of our population have a disability and we are not represented one in four times a wheel. Trust all and it's like oh welcome for trying. No i train this hard as olympian does. I'm a paralympian. And i'm proud of that and i you know work hard to to get there and so for me this still work to be done and so how would actually feel to win a medal in tokyo all winning a medal. Paralympic medal is honestly. My biggest dream is biggest goal in life and obviously gold would be the absolute pinnacle book. Success for us would come in the form of a medal because we never one one before we've got world silver european silver that the best achievements that we've have as a team so far. We came fourth in rio so we were that team. That was just one place you know. Missed it just by one place. So i think it just made me so much more hungry. I suppose for what has been now five years of preparation into tokyo. And i think we're ready. I think we're in a great place and quietly confident going into these games that we've got really good chance of bringing home a medal and honestly i've thought about it already where when i put it. What would i do frame man. When i tell you i feel like i need to like sleep with it for a week or something at least just to make sure that it was actually real. Maybe i should make something like tom daley to put it in. Yeah i mean. I'm keeping my fingers tightly crossed. That success comes out way and we've worked really hard so whatever happens really proud of this team. I feel sixteen year. old self. could see now. what would you think. Oh i think should be really proud. I think should be yeah. She'd be happy and she saw think. Wow it does alter now all right. In the end overcoming adversity it's possible and living fulfilling and happy an amazing life afterwards. he's also more than possible so it was such a pleasure to speak to you. Thank you so much. And obviously we wishing you so much good luck. We're gonna be really hard for you back at home. Thank you so much. I really appreciate the support..

Was For mercy for animals and he's like, Hey, these these people were sitting around a table at native foods having like a little chapter meeting and I asked him about it. Because I heard they were talking about you know animal animal rights would not and So I grabbed the flyer few and they were talking about the same stuff you talk about my husband was just the recipient of my like flood of this happens in this happens in this happens and this isn't okay. So. I. Called the called mercy for animals and got to talk to the lovely Ari Solomon who we know and love so much and he was like sure come on visit well, I'll take you to lunch show you the office and I was like, okay.

Most of us either activists in this are fairly empathetic folks and so I was really struggling with. Learning how to not take on the the the pain and an at an agony that the animals were experiencing. Right. So just you know exactly what I'm talking about. So our helped me a lot without in in in learning that I needed to add more humor laughter to my life. So to this day I, still try and watch a lot of comedy. So I could just have good gut belly laughs but anyway, I came home I remember buying team to ten or so t shirts. Mercy for animals and I drove home on the four.

"I think you were going to make it the way you made it very candid that makes that makes. As you know, when we used to discuss and still do this guys your current show with Dan, I used to tell you that I didn't get it. Now that I you know, because you're on the show I listened to it, and I do get it now fifteen years, but you finally get the show Brown. I'm john. I'm a fifteen years is probably would've quicker than you would have gotten it. I still don't get it. Standing vigil is interesting. Just imagine a father turning on the radio every day, not knowing what it is that we're doing and hearing his son B a pin yada on the show. Just take a beating from torn on the show dad that didn't sit well with you like just fly because Dan's lap. He doesn't care. I would guess my guess is a Stanford. I want your rea- I want you to guess your first how do you think that felt about laboratory at the beginning setting it up the way just set it up hated him that you hated them. You know, I didn't hate him. Because. I can tell you, very honestly. And you know, I've said this to you. I thought Dan was being disrespectful to you. But it wasn't. Hey. And I thought sometimes he piles on. But that now, you know, but now you realize what he was doing because now, you know, him a little bit, and you know, him to be kind, and gentle soul and very loyal. Right. So you know, all these things about him. But what we were doing. And when you do the show the type of show that we do where you're always trying to be funny occasionally with tone with delivery, you can over step that boundary where funny becomes me. And so I knew what we were going for. And I knew the times where it felt mean and certain you felt them as well. But now, you know, what Dan was really doing was he was positioning me to be. You know, the store the show because none of this works. What we do the chaos around. Dan. I can't be a clown unless we have the pillar of journalism sitting right next to me. And I'm knowing the pillar by being cloud. You know, I understand that. But you remember I'm coming at her. Perspective of fog. Right. I understand totally. And as you guys say, I get the show. So I enjoy listening to it now. And, you know, then then you really work well together and some of it works. Well, other times occasionally, you still course boundaries. You seem to recover better from it then used to you know, up, and here's the thing that when you're the leader, Dan's the leader of our show. So when he embraces, hey, make fun of me. Mock me, I'm cool with it like I just filled in for him on highly questionable. And I sat in the big seat. And I said, hey, it's God's filling in for Dan. I got the big seat today by big. I mean why? And Dan thought that was funny right because I'm calling them fat. Right. When he shows an ability to take that everyone else has to take extension. I think Dan chosen ability to take kidding about himself would lose. You're a very nice quality all my friend Sesa. I that's part of the reason.

Nerd he kinda famously goes to the tape more than anybody else in preps more than from what we understand anybody certainly in his era and everybody else who kind of could hold, you know, a candle to him from that sort of second tier of player who didn't push their way into the big three to make the big four to your point. On faded away. And I think the irony of that is that tore his body up. And a hip injury is just a no go. It's a no go for a guy in a in a grass court era where the points are fast, and you're serving volleyer, it's an certainly a no-go in grinded out tennis. Which is what we have now with Flo. Courts and anybody willing to extend the point where imagine to four or five hours, which is why again losing in the first round to Roberto bautisa GU a great player, but a grinder on a slow Austrailia open court in four hours and five sets is kind of the most Andy Murray way to go out. And so even in what hopefully won't be. But in my view will be his last Australian Open he goes out very much the way he he hung in there, which is just grueling physical tennis that didn't and in some cases sort of obscured. How funny and smart and dry, and and vibrant. He was inside his own head, which is why he was such a sort of interesting character. So it was just sort of this. Of course, he lost last night of. Course, he played five sets. Of course, it took four hours. And of course, he's crying about it. And everyone's in everyone's weeping. It's just it's it's kind of fitting a fitting bowtie in a lot of ways on on his on where his career is at this moment that was incredibly well said so I don't feel like I have a ton tad. But I think the one thing that we would be remiss not to include is the fact that he had all this pressure on him with the whole no Brett having won Wimbledon thing. And how he took that on he lost several times. And was clearly gutted by it cried was felt bad that he had let everyone down which is ridiculous sentiment to have. But always expressed himself, honestly, and openly and war that emotion, very proudly and openly and just the way that he delivered and finally won Wimbledon. He also won an Olympic gold. Medal and the London Olympics and two thousand twelve and as Caitlyn said, it's just another example of this guy who in an era in which he was not the best player and in an era in which the guys that came after him curious, maybe somebody like around each guys who are probably better more talented players just succumbed repeatedly to the likes of federal joke. Michener doll Murray. Never did. And he actually got to the mountaintop was number one for more than forty weeks won three grand slam titles that I think kaylin is why the men in particular have responded in the way that they have everybody saying, you gave it everything you had you were the ultimate grinder just like so much respect for him for the fact that he fought both on the court and fought it in this era. Have you were talking just now an image came into my head, which might only make sense for fellow children of the nineties as as I know you, and I are it's it's these original Terminator model embodied by Arnold Schwarzenegger being slowly lowered into the lava at the end of Terminator two surrounded defeated, but somehow triumphant over the t- to flashy, please models holding them up to the sun figure in Edward furlong character, which is where Gandhi Murray is gazing out until his, you know, the onto the next generation the the beat up defeated, but ultimately, you know, here to be in our hearts forever original, Terminator model that that is about as Andy Murray as it's going to get for a pop culture equivalent, and for me, it's a pretty it's a pretty fitting one, you know, sums up to you Eddie Murray.
