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.

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!
