Dealing with the loss of a loved one is always difficult, but Red Roses' flanker Vicky Fleetwood had to deal with the passing of her mum while trying to prepare for the Olympics. On this England Rugby Podcast: O2 Inside Line, Vicky opens up on the emotions she had to deal with at the time, how that period has influenced her as a person and how she grieves now.
As well as her loss, Vicky explains how she left a life as a personal trainer to become a professional rugby player, becoming a world champion in 2014 and her role in promoting body positivity. Season eight sees the players telling their own stories, in their own words, with this pod including contributions from England's Rachael Burford and Harlequins, and ex-Saracens, hooker Joe Gray, who is a patron at Bowel Cancer UK, as well as team mates Poppy Cleall and Claudia MacDonald.
