Our eighth google hangout is twice the fun as we put your questions to not one, but two gold medallists! Discussing both the Highlights from Rio and their daily lives as athletes, we put the same questions to Max Whitlock and Jonnie Peacock to find out more about the worlds of an Olympic and Paralympic champion.
Our first Hangout guest is gymnast Max Whitlock. Max had an incredible games in Rio, winning gold in both the individual floor and pommel horse finals, as well as bronze in the men’s all-around event – Team GB’s first medal in this event in 108 years!
Watch the hangout now to hear Max’s thoughts on winning his Gold medals, top tips for aspiring athletes, and – given the choice – what animal would he be?
Watch part two now and find out what Paralympic Sprinter Jonnie Peacock thought of the Highlights from Rio.
