The Jonah Keri Podcast #43: Will Claye

Jonah Keri jumps into a conversation with Will Claye, Olympic long jumper and triple jumper, about whether Olympic-caliber athletes need to be single-minded; the experience of getting heavily recruited by colleges; being the first person since the 1936 Olympics to medal in both the long jump and triple jump; compensation for college athletes; his parents’ escape from Sierra Leone and the alternate life Will could have led; his first Olympics in London, including wild times in and out of the Olympic Village and walking next to Kobe and LeBron in the Opening Ceremonies; heading to Rio; having his own fashion line; why track and field isn’t more popular in the U.S.; concerns about bringing his family to Rio; and Will’s Life Tip.
