Vanessa Raw has had quite the rollercoaster triathlon ride: spotted at a swim practice at Loughborough Uni, and fast tracked to the 2012 Olympic development team, injury, burnout, a horrendous crash and now a 2nd chance: life as a long course triathlete, with great results at 70.3 and Ironman this year. Having gone sub 9.30 in her first Ironman, she's clearly talented and hard working in equal measure. We catch up with Vanessa to find out what we can learn from her journey from injury to podium!

Plus: Helen gets a sports massage live on air, Rob gets badgered into admitting what he's really training for, and we have all the results from the weekend's racing!
