In today’s episode I interview Canadian national team goalkeeper and Olympic medalist, Erin McLeod.
Erin’s obsession with competing in the Olympics began at childhood in Alberta, Canada. Despite doubters, Erin was convinced it was going to happen. It did. And more.
Erin has represented Canada in three World Cups, and two Olympics, earning a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics. She is now seen as one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
Erin’s talents extend beyond the soccer field. She is a tattoo artist, the co-founder of the clothing line company Motive Collective, the creator of Motive Nation (providing content and resources for people striving for more), the wife of pro-footballer Ella Masar, and the mother to two chihuahuas, among many other things.
Through it all, Erin has an insatiable hunger to grow, learn, evolve, and inspire.
In our conversation, Erin talks about:
-the influence her art has on her goalkeeping
-what it was like living and playing in Jakarta, Indonesia as a child during the riots
-the risk scale, created by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, that she uses to rate her days
-her interaction with Lebron James at the Olympics
-why her third ACL tear served as an opportunity to fall in love with the game again
-the period-tracking app that she uses to enhance her performance on the field
