Gemma won a silver medal in the London 2012 Olympics as well as capturing hearts with her famous moment of the games of a tribute to her mum after winning her semi-final to take her to the gold medal fight.
Gemma and Lewis talk about the negative experiences she was able to turn on their head, obstacles she overcame, the skills of judo that it teaches you, how a judo chop isn’t a real thing, but also how she balances the internal and external motivations.
