HB•R is a platform for artists, entrepreneurs and athletes alike to discuss their journey towards success, lessons learned along the way and thoughts on the current state of culture. For episode 58, Olympic medalists Andre De Grasse of Canada and Will Claye of team U.S.A. sit down with us to talk life since Rio 2016 Olympics and prepping for the 2020 Games.
Both Dre and Will are coming off a successful 2016 Olympic Games, one in which Dre took home silver in the 200 meters and bronze in both the 100 meters and 4×100 meters, while Will won a silver in the triple jump. Since then however, both PUMA athletes have faced their fair share of adversity, from injuries to debunked doping allegations. Now that they’re both healthy, focused and beginning their respective families, Dre and Will are setting their sights, and training, on the 2020 Games. And with the same goal in mind: win gold.
Throughout our conversation, you’ll get to hear about their rigorous training regimes, why their bodies are treated like Ferraris, track & field after Usain Bolt, how they balance starting a family with a career in pro sports, and so much more. Will even talks about the time he went in the studio and rapped for YG and 50 Bloods. Very rare.
