Lucas Calabrese won a Bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics and earned his way to the 2016 Summer Olympics sailing the 470 sailboat for Argentina. His career started at a very early age when he won his first World Championship at the age of 12 years old, and placed on the podium for three years in a row at that young age. Lucas has a different way of looking at mental preparation that's a combination of emotion and focus, and an unbelievable relaxation about his place in the world after winning a Medal. JC gets to talk and laugh with him about a whole range of topics including post-Olympic stardom, premonitions, friends getting robbed in Rio before the Games, shootouts, and of course they talk success in individual and team sports. It's a must listen for competitive athletes who want to excel from the first time they start their sport!
Back again is the original sailing podcast sidekick, Petey Crawford. After living in South Florida for a couple years, JC is is becoming a confrontational anti-litterer and has had enough of people who drive like Petey. What's the average person's duty to keep the other average person from throwing garbage on the ground daily? Get in their face? Exactly. JC and Petey agree there should be a government award for people who film other people trashing. They expound on multiple Zika virus conspiracies nobody has thought about. Let's not forget Olympic sailors in the crossfire and getting robbed in Brazil. JC drops the bomb that one day in the hopefully far future there will be no sport known as sailing and if we make it to a new world, the people who get there could possibly not understand the sailing concept. They don't actually understand how World Sailing works and discuss crappy Miami regattas and current National news from the Melges world. Is it serious or fun? Yeah!
