    Greg chats with the world's greatest athletes and high performers to find out how they got to the top of the world and how they are able to sustain it.

    In this week’s episode, Greg chats with one of the most successful middle-distance triathletes, Rudy von Berg.

    2019 saw a breakthrough performance and a World Championship podium for the fast-rising Rodolphe Von Berg. But, when you are already part of a triathlon dynasty long before you turn 30, there are still plenty more chapters to be written in the sporting history of RVB.

    The sport of triathlon truly runs through the veins of the Von Berg family. Rodolphe Sr continues to be one of the best in the world in his category, still racing with success into his 60s. With his son’s progress to date, the dynasty has many years to run yet.

    “My earliest memory of him racing was in Kona at the IRONMAN World Championship in 1998 when I was 5 years old,” says ‘Junior’, who is now doing a fine job of forging his own direction in the sport, a path which he hopes in due course will lead him to the top step of the podium on the Big Island.

    “As a kid, you definitely tell yourself, ‘One day I’ll be here with the top pros to try and win it!’ Kona will always be the number one race to win for me in my career.”

    While success on Alii’s Drive may be a few years off yet - he’s yet to even start over the iron distance - his rapid progress, race wins and Championship titles over the Middle Distance confirm that his career path is heading firmly in the right direction.

    Greg chats with the world's greatest athletes and high performers to find out how they got to the top of the world and how they are able to sustain it.

    In this week’s episode, Greg chats with U.S Triathlete, Taylor Knibb.

    Taylor Knibb is 23 and has already taken the world by storm. Her win at the WTS Yokohama event at the start of 2021 earned her an Olympic spot for the US team in Tokyo. In Tokyo, her performance in the mixed relay was one of the most powerful performances of the day, earning herself, and her team the silver medal.

    A few weeks after the Games, she went on a stampede. She placed 2nd at the Boulder 70.3. Second at the WTS Montreal. Won the WTS Grand Final in Edmonton, then smashed the incredible field at the Collins Cup in Samorin, Slovakia on a road bike with the fastest time by over 3 minutes, and then wrapped it up, by finishing 3rd at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships.

    Add to that her Junior and U23 World Titles ... and wow ... the future of women’s triathlon is truly here.

    Her current PTO World Ranking is 4th in the world – and that ranking does not include the Olympics or World series events.

    On top of all that, she’s one of the sweetest, most down to earth women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know.

  • Welcome to The Greg Bennett show, an AnyQuestion podcast hosted by Former Professional Olympic and World Champion Athlete Greg Bennett.

    Greg chats with the world's greatest athletes and high performers to find out how they got to the top of the world and how they are able to sustain it.

    In this week’s episode, Greg chats with Australian Triathlete, Ashleigh Gentle.

    Ashleigh is one of the most accomplished elite women on the WTS circuit.

    For the best part of the past 10 years Ashleigh has won some of the worlds biggest events, including, The Escape from Alcatraz triathlon, several ITU world series events, none bigger than the grand final in 2018. Ashleigh has won 8 (yes that’s eight) Noosa triathlons from 10 starts. She has been to multiple Olympics.

    In 2014 she won silver in WTS Yokohama in 2015 and 2016 and in Abu Dhabi in 2016. By May 2016, she was ranked third in the world and in the same year, the Australian Olympic Committee announced Gentle’s selection as one of six triathletes who would represent Australia at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro

    Ashleigh Gentle won silver at the Junior World Championships in Hamburg in 2007 and Vancouver in 2008, then finally discovered the golden touch in Budapest in 2010. The following year, Gentle won her first ITU World Cup in Edmonton, before placing 9th at her first WTS race in London and has since been one of the sport’s most consistent performers at the top level.

    14:24 - In a series of rapid fire questions, Greg and Ashleigh discuss the feeling of making money (aka) getting “paid” to be an athlete.

    25:28 - Ashleigh explains how she got a start in triathlon.

    31:51 - At the age of 16 Ashleigh won silver in her first Junior title representing her country.

    40:21 - Ashleigh and Greg discuss the transition from being a teenage athlete to becoming an elite woman athlete.

    45:00 - The good times don’t always last, and Ashleigh explains some of the tougher struggles she has experienced in her career.

    51:44 - The first Olympics. Ashleigh describes her preparation and the drama of losing all her baggage and her racing bike.

    57:06 - Aside from the lows, there have been some amazing highs in Ashleigh’s career … one being the 2018 Grand final on the Gold Coast.

    1:01:38 - Greg and Ashleigh recap 2021 and the challenges of travelling, competing, and hotel quarantine.

    1:10:12 - Like so many elite athletes, Ashleigh knows when she is knocked down, how to get up and fight again. Having just recently won her 8th Noosa tri, Ashleigh explains that it has been crucial for her to surround herself with people that lift her up, rather than those negative noises from the public.

    1:15:45 - Ashleigh shares her tips for helping people optimize their own lives.

  • Podcast: The Greg Bennett Show

    Episode: Nicola Spirig

    Welcome to The Greg Bennett show, a Bennett Endurance podcast hosted by Former Professional Olympic Athlete Greg Bennett. ​​Greg chats with the world's greatest athletes and high performers to find out how they got to the top of the world and how they are able to sustain it. In today’s episode, he is joined by his wife Laura, and they hear from Nicola Spirig. Nicola Spirig is a Swiss professional triathlete. She is a five-time Olympian, the 2012 Olympic, and six times European champion in women's triathlon. Nicola is married to fellow retired athlete Reto Hug, has three children, and during her athletic career completed a law degree.

    As the conversation kicks off, Greg asks Nicola to reflect on this past year in the sport. She has been training and her next large goal is to complete an IronMan race in under eight hours. Even if a goal sounds impossible, she says it’s important to try, especially when the intention is to inspire others to follow their dreams. Nicola isn’t an extrovert who loves being in front of others, but she does love working with young people and is glad her status as an Olympian has given her this platform.

    Going into this year’s Tokyo Olympics, Nicola was ready. She was able to prepare without injury, compete in and win other good races like the European Championships, and beat some of her own personal best times. On race day, even though everyone had prepared for a hot day, it was raining, which for Nicola wasn’t a problem and she placed sixth. Today, she says she’s happy with her performance and wouldn’t change anything even though she didn’t get the medal she was aiming for.

    Nicola grew up with parents who were sports teachers and had the luxury of trying many different sports. For a long time, she didn’t think of triathlon as a career, but rather as something she loved to do. She only considered herself a professional athlete for about two years, despite being involved in the sport for much longer. Her preparation around the London 2012 Olympics was nearly perfect and her at a professional level. She won that triathlon just ahead of Lisa Norden, with their times being the same, and only a photograph was able to be used to separate their crossing the finish line.

    For the Rio Olympics, things were different. She was injured, the defending Olympic champion, and she’d had a baby in the years since her Olympic win. She took home the silver from that race and says the experience was much different than the London Olympics, but she was still very happy with her performance. She reminds listeners that while yes it takes a lot to get a medal in the Olympic games, it also takes a lot to finish fourth, sixth, or tenth.

    Laura and Greg then ask Nicola rapid-fire questions covering everything from TV and movies to household chores, to her taste in music. Then they wrap up the episode with Nicola sharing what her day-to-day life is like these days.

His knowledge of what it takes to perform at the highest level is remarkable... we could have kept talking for hours... in fact, we did keep chatting post-recording for a long time. min 47.00 - Predictions The 70.3 World Championships in St.George - altitude, dry air, advantage media at front of the race, Sam Long, 1/2 the field will be cooked, can the Norwegians maintain a pick min 52.10 - The woman predictions - Daniela Ryf, Taylor Knibb - Swimmers Lucy Charles-Barclay, Pamela Oliveria, Bike - Clear favorite is Daniela Ryf - The claims are power climbs - the difference between weight for athletes on the hills, Holly Lawrence, Chelsea Sadaro, Paula Findley, Jackie Hering, Ellie Salthouse, Emma Pallant-Browne - Tims picks 1st Daniela, 2nd Taylor Knibb 3rd Ellie Salthouse - 1st Daniela Ryf, Emma Pallant-brown, and Taylor Knibb min 59.00 - The men predictions - who is out Gomez, Brownlee, Lionel Sanders, - Michael Raelerts a dark horse for top 5 - Sam Appleton, Ben Kanute off the front - "They've gotta go" - Sam Long - the media train upfront could hurt him - Gustav Iden is the favorite, Kristian Blummenfelt in 2nd, Feeling for Rudy von Berg, Brad Weiss is on form - Appleton, and Kanute for the podium, Daniel Beakegard min1.06.00 What about Tims prediction - he'd like a top 10 Discount Codes and Deals Athletic Greens - a FREE year supply of Vitamin D AND 5 FREE travel packs with your first purchase by visiting athleticgreens.com/gregHyperice - Click https://bit.ly/3jzyFDa for exclusive offers on all Hyperice products or visit at hyperice.com and use the code mentioned in the showFormSwim Goggles - formswim.com/greg for $15 off - The coupon will be automatically added to the cart.

  • These days in the sport of Triathlon we love to throw around names like Jan Frodeno, Alistair Brownlee, Javier Gomez as being the greatest of all time, and obviously, they’re all in the conversation. But, when I rewind the clock there are other names that we need to start throwing into that discussion, Simon Lessing, Scott Molina, Greg Welch, Brad Bevan, Mike Pigg.... and the list goes on. And then there are two that I look at, that influenced my desire to become a professional Triathlete more than anyone else. And I believe, They have impacted the sport as a whole more than anyone else. They have been on this show separately in episodes 5 and 7. But today I’m joined with both of them on the show together. What a privilege it is to have Dave Scott sit with me in the studio and Mark Allen call in. We discuss the Collins Cup from the past week, Ironman Kona – or lack thereof, the sport of Triathlon as a whole, and well, anything and everything. We end with some fun rapid-fire questions.

  • Timothy O'Donnell joins me in my studio for the second time. One of Triathlon's greatest Ironman athletes. One of 4 to go under 8 hours at the Kona IM World Championships. He was last on the show in episode 10. That chat was a remote conversation, but today we’re in person. Our conversation starts a little serious as we discuss Tim's near-fatal Heart attack. We move onto discussing the Collins Cup Triathlon, Kona Ironman, and anything and everything Triathlon. We conclude with some fun rapid-fire questions.
