In Episode #85, I sat down with plant-based Australian track athlete Catriona Bisset, who currently holds the national record for the 800m event. If you haven’t heard of Catriona, chances are you will very soon – seemingly coming out of nowhere, she is now destined to represent Australia at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
In this episode, we talked about Catriona’s journey from a young track athlete and the pressures she faced, through her struggles with anxiety, depression, and disordered eating, to how and why she adopted a plant-based diet. She shared the ins and outs of her diet and how she has worked on it to improve her well-being and performance. And, of course, we talked about her amazing achievement of setting the Australian national record for the 800m event and her future as an Olympic hopeful and a voice for positive change.
