Podcast – Maris Strombergs talks the future
On this week’s Podcast Dr. Jason Richardson and I head up to Murrieta to sit down and grab a coffee with the 2 X Olympic Champion, Maris Strombergs. We all know there has been a lot of speculation on whether Maris will give Tokyo a run in 2020 but Maris finally puts it straight… he has decided to retire and call it a day on his career officially after a lot of consideration.
Of course, we recap some of the highlights of Maris’ career from moving to the US after winning the Beijing Games to discovering Starbucks, getting on Free Agent and the adjustments to living and racing in the US. We talk about his wins in Beijing and London, winning the USA BMX title, some of his rivals over the years and his thoughts on the current state of the industry and who he thinks the players for Gold in Tokyo 2020 will be. Plus, lots more. Check it out.
