We’re now less than 5 weeks out from the start of the Tokyo Olympics. To celebrate we’re bringing you a mini-series called The Shakeout Podcast: Olympic-Bound Canadians. Each week we sit down with some of our country’s best runners who are, in all likelihood, heading to Tokyo.
It’s been a long road to make it back to representing @TeamCanada at the Olympics 9 years later. Honoured to be among this fierce marathon team. Thank you @AthleticsCanada for the nomination.@HOKAONEONE https://t.co/ShSuZk8yhq

Each episode will focus on a different event group and sex category. We’ll chat about athletes’ preparation for the Games, their goals, and other exciting storylines to follow. Our second episode features the men’s marathon with Cam Levins, Trevor Hofbauer and Ben Preisner. Tristan Woodfine, who also had Olympic standard in this event appealed his non-selection to the team, but the appeal was rejected last week. This means that our three guests are guaranteed a spot on the Tokyo start line!
