5 Things #006

Hi *|FNAME|*,

Having a great summer so far?

Efficiency rate at Customer IQ HQ is well down this week due to constant Olympic-sized distractions.

It’s been a brilliant Olympics so far, particularly for female athletes.

Here are 5 highlights

5 of the most inspiring* female Olympians from Tokyo 2020 (*in our opinion)

1. Dina Asher-Smith.

Crushing disappointment for Dina due to a torn hamstring which hampered her performance in the 100m and forced a decision to pull out of the 200m.

But her resilience and competitive spirit shine through in her post-race interview.

Then to come back today and win a bronze in the 4x100m relay was a genuine triumph.

2. Ruby Tui.

New Zealand rugby 7s gold medal winner, Ruby Tui has infectious enthusiasm and a beautiful spirit.

Some of this spirit is evident in her post-match interview with Jill Douglas (which went viral).

Watch this and you’ll be smiling from ear to ear.

3. Laura Muir.

Having been every-so-nearly-there for so many championships, Laura Muir today took silver in the womens’ 1,500m.

An amazing achievement given the quality of the field and the spectre of Rio, where she ran out hard to win gold and ended up finishing in 7th place.

A brilliant race, the best 4 minutes you can spend today.

4. Laura Kenny.

Another fab Laura… Laura Kenny.

Now Britain’s 4th most decorated Olympian (#1 female) with 5 golds with a very good chance of adding #6 in the Omnium which would put her on level terms with Chris Hoy and Jason Kenny. Go Laura!

5. Laura Collett.

This could have been the ‘5 Lauras’ email.

8 years ago, Laura had a horrific riding accident, needed to be resuscitated 5 times, was put in an induced coma and broke a lot of bones.

This week she won gold in equestrian team eventing.

One of the most incredible and inspiring comeback stories ever?
