Hear stories from Sneha Patil!

We put the spotlight on Sneha Patil, well-regraded as one of India’ top athletes, in this episode of the Unintended Receiver (UR) podcast. Sneha, who is usually not seen sharing much of her inner workings, shares thoughts around elite athlete training, preparation for World Championships and competitive Ultimate in India. UR co-hosts, Jaidip Patel and Richa Patel, dig deep to also reveal Sneha’s journey from a teenage hurdler to a bronze medallist with Team India.

Listen in for tips on training and mental toughness from Sneha, a speedy, determined, and an elite athlete with few but mighty words. Don’t miss the bonus banter in the quick fire round with some surprising answers!
