An Irishman Abroad

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”The Gait Analysis Episode” At Profeet London

October 12, 2021
The experts at Profeet in London welcome Jar (the rookie) and Sonia (the Olympic legend) to their 3D imaging lab and state of the art facility to examine, compare and contrast their running mechanics. In this bumper episode the listener gets to come inside Profeet's incredible Fulham Road facility for Jar and Sonia's first ever road trip adventure episode.  Tom Scales from Profeet talks us through the data and personally sculpts custom insoles for Jar and Sonia based on the information gathered.
In the extended edition the craic is mighty as the results roll in and a few unexpected insights emerge. Hear the reactions as their results are read out, learn why Sonia has a better pain threshold than Jarlath and get a deeper than expected account from Jarlath as he is roasted by Sonia for his shorts selection. There’s also the email of the week and Sonia’s now legendary tip of the week.
