In the final Wrighty’s House of the year, Ian is joined by Jeanette Kwakye, Musa Okwonga and Ryan Hunn (Carl Anka couldn’t be there but was there in spirit) for an unscripted chat over a drink or two. They begin with tales of Christmas, parenting and dinner pressure (01:14), plus the first time Musa and Ryan met Ian (12:15). There’s chat about the science and artistry of being an elite athlete (19:14), sporting intelligence (27:50), and Jeanette tells a story about competing in an Olympic final (35:33) and the pressure of performing on the biggest stage. Ian shares his experience of playing against Italy in 1997 (39:13), and they discuss some of their favorite moments of the year (47:14).
