Podcast Episode 140: Sonia Sullivan – 3x World Champion (500m, Cross Country), Olympic Silver Medallist 5000m

In episode 140 of The Physical Performance Show I share a conversation with featured performer Sonia Sullivan – 3x World Champion (500m, Cross Country), Olympic Silver Medallist 5000m

Sonia Sullivan has an impressive Bio.  Sonia won gold in the 5000m at the 1995 World Athletics Championships and the Silver Medal in the 5000m at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. In fact, Sonia’s World Record of 5:25 still stands from 1994. Sonia first came to running prominence when she finished fourth in the 3000m Final of the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. From there, Sonia went on to win the Silver Medal in the 1500m at the 1993 World Athletics Championships before becoming the favourite for the 5000m title at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

During this episode Sonia talks through the pain of her Olympic loss along with her life now with her husband Melbourne Track Club Coach Nic Bideau, raising their children and walking a dog and at times listening in to The Physical Performance Show. There’s a whole lot in this episode with Sonia O’Sullivan sharing around her career highs, lows and learnings that I know you really enjoy.
