In Episode 85 I sat down with plant based athlete Catriona Bisset, Australian track athlete 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 destined to represent Australia at the 2020 Tokyo olympics.
Specifically we cover:
Catriona’s days as a young track athlete and the pressures she felt
Her struggles with anxiety, depression and disordered eating
Adopting a plant based diet and her purpose for doing so
The ins and outs of her diet and how she has worked through specific aspects to improve her well-being and performance
Setting the Australian national record for the 800m event
Being an olympic hopeful and voice for positive change
