Peter Urich is the managing director of CLIMsystems, a climate research company instrumental in getting the dates of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar moved backwards in order to ensure better athlete safety.

In light of the sweltering conditions at the World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar, Peter talked about how their research is used to try and improve athlete welfare by analysing weather systems and giving advice on how it might affect the competition.

He spoke with Radio Sport's Jason Pine about the work they do.
