Welcome to Sport Inspires, a podcast recorded with the Mary Peters Trust and made possible by the Coca-cola Thank you Fund. Today’s episode is with Olympic hockey stars Stephen Martin and Jimmy Kirkwood who both won gold medals with Team GB in the 1988 Summer Games. In this conversation myself and Lady Mary Peters talk with them about:
  • Their once in a lifetime experiences in Korea
  • The strangest doors their medals have opened for them
  • And why they think no one from Northern Ireland has won gold in the summer games ever since.
Thanks so much for being here and we really hope you enjoy. https://bestofbelfast.org/stories/olympic-gold-medals-northern-ireland
