How This Sporting Event Could Change Your Life with Michael Lemmel

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  February 5, 2020

Can a sporting event really change the world? It might sound crazy, but with the right ingredients, I think it can.

My guest on this week’s podcast is Michael Lemmel, co-founder of Swimrun, a sporting experience that’s taken the world by storm. What began as a drunken bet between friends, to swim and run between islands off Sweden, evolved into an organised endurance event and now an eco-conscious, global phenomenon, attracting people of all ages and abilities.

You run in your wetsuit, swim in your shoes and complete a series of short swims and trail runs, all with a partner. I did my first Swimrun in Devon last summer, and myself and my nine-year-old son are now total converts. Michael and I chatted just before our third event, in Malta, and I was keen to find out why he thinks it’s such a transformative experience.

But this week’s episode is definitely not just for outdoor sports enthusiasts – it’s about the power of nature, the joy of coming together with others. It’s about stepping outside of your comfort zone, becoming a better person – and, yes, making the world a better place.
