The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena
Alexander Kopacz won Olympic gold in the two-man bobsled in 2018. Was it grit, determination, stubbornness, or an inability to face losing? He joins Spartan Race founder and CEO Joe De Sena on the Spartan Up podcast to talk about the physical and mental challenges of competing at that level and what you can learn from his experiences.  

Thank you to our friend Jason Nacey from USANA for introducing us to Alex.
