In this episode, Kara Goucher and Chris McClung interview Mirinda Carfrae (@mirindacarfrae) who is one of the best triathletes in the world. Mirinda (who goes by Rinny for short) has finished on the podium at the Ironman World Championships in Kona seven times with three victories, three second-place finishes, and one third-place finish. She also holds the run-course record in Kona with a time of 2 hours and 50 minutes for the marathon to cap off the 140.6 mile race.
With Rinny, we talk about her beginnings in sport as a basketball player, her transition to triathlon, and how she became one of the best in the world at her craft. We also cover what her training looks like, how she is so good at running off the bike, what it has been like coming back to competing after having her first child, and of course, her perspective on clean sport in her sport.
Rinny's perspective on clean sport is clear and straight forward, and she would like to see even more rigor to fight doping in the sport of triathlon.
