This week, Noah Lyles and Shaunae Miller-Uibo ... two of the fastest people on the planet! We’re in Monaco with the Olympic 400 metres champion from Bahamas and the US sprinter who’s favourite for 200 metre gold at the World Champs.
What socks is Noah wearing? Which of the X-Men is Shaunae? Who is building their own Lego city? Who started competing for their country when they were nine years old?
Those questions answered, as well as more serious discussions about comparisons with Usain Bolt, and whether some of the older women’s world records are holding the sport back. (Photo: Getty Images)

The Warm Up Track: BBC Athletics Podcast, Episode five
This week, Armand Duplantis and his sporting family. He's tipped to break the Pole Vault world record one day soon. He's our guest, and so is his Dad. Not because it's a 'bring your father to work' day, but because Greg was a Pole Vaulter first and was pretty good too.
Find out what happens when you miss the mat and land on a table (one of Dad's stories) and what's it like when your 17-year-old son beats your lifetime best.
One of Mondo's elder brothers, Antoine, plays Major League Baseball ... but is that down to Greg's genes or his wife Helena's? She was a Heptathlete for Sweden, the country Mondo has chosen to represent on the international stage rather than the United States.
We're in California, where Superman once foiled a deadly plot by Lex Luther. So, what super power would we all like to have? These are the questions, along with a more serious consideration of when Mondo believes he can break the world record.
