David Watson is the Head of Sport for Spartan. David joined The OCR Report for a wide-ranging exclusive conversation about OCR and the Olympics, Spartan Games 2.0, Spartan Cross League and much more. This conversation between David Watson and Will Hicks is only available on The OCR Report.

When will we see OCR athletes compete every four years on the world’s biggest stage? The last 16 months have thrown a wrench in the plans, but “you’d be amazed how quickly things come back”.

Along with OCR and the Olympics they also discussed:

  • Spartan Games Season Two! Venue: The Beach!
  • Spartan Cross League. This is early but sounds very promising
  • Spartan Ultra World Championships. This is the first year this 24-hour race has been held in the US.
  • Spartan North American Champs. Tahoe, but with some surprises for long-time runners.
  • Spartan World Championships in Abu Dhabi. “Like nothing OCR has ever seen before.”
