Nick Willis is New Zealand’s only two-time Olympic medallist in the 1500 metres event, winning silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and bronze at Rio in 2016.  

He holds the national and Oceania record for the same distance, claimed three consecutive Commonwealth Games medals between 2006 and 2014, and last week broke the sub-4 minute mile for a record 19 years in a row.  

He joined Simon Barnett and Phil Gifford for this week's Six and a Song, where he talked about the delay to the Tokyo Olympics, and how he spent lockdown when he couldn't train.
