Sincerely, Sloane Episode #9 | Athing Mu ✨

What's delayed is not denied 🙌🏾

On this week’s episode of Sincerely, Sloane, I chat with 800m Tokyo Olympic Gold Medalist Athing Mu! If you followed the US Olympic Trials a few weeks ago, you likely joined me in collective heartbreak after Athing fell in her heat and will not defend her 800m title in Paris.

Our Monday reminder

We all set out with big visions for how we see our lives and careers unfolding. Sometimes, reality unfolds differently, either privately or publicly, and that can be really hard to process. My girl Ting Ting will forever be an Olympic Gold Medalist and will continue to train her heart out and fight another day. As you’ll hear in this episode, her “Gold Medal Mentality” is a daily mindset for excellence and is not something just limited to the Olympics.

I recorded this conversation with Athing before Trials, and I hope this episode gives you the opportunity to get to know the woman outside of the titles and the headlines - the funny, family-focused, fashion-loving Athing. She’s truly special and has such amazing things ahead. Check it out wherever you tune into podcasts - I linked directly for you below.
