In Episode #116 of the LEO Training Podcast, I interview world record holder and entrepreneur Juliane Rasmussen.

The third interview in our lightweight series is with Juliane Rasmussen. Juliane has a long and storied career and has competed in four olympic games beginning in Athens and through to the Rio Olympic Games. She has earned multiple medals at world cups and world championships in the lightweight women’s double and lightweight women’s quad.

Juliane and I discuss her consistent success over so many years while starting a family as well as entrepreneurial endeavors with a company she co-founded,  Athletes Own.
