Show Notes

Just a few months younger than her contemporaries and fellow powerhouses Queen Elizabeth and David Attenborough, Heather Lee is a truly unstoppable Australian.

At 93 years of age, Heather believes exercise and nutrition are the secrets to her long-time wellbeing and sporting success and her ability to live an active and independent life.

When you listen to this episode you’ll notice her attitude and enthusiasm are inspiring.

Ranked number 1 in the world in race walking in her age group, Heather believes the well-used phrase “use it or lose it” is now even more important for Aussies than ever before, as our nation is ageing, becoming more sedentary and feeling the mental pressures of everyday life.

In 2014 Heather was awarded the Order of Australia Media for her “service to athletics through masters race walking, and to the community.”

And in 2019 she was announced NSW Senior Australian of the Year Award. Joining us for the SECOND time on 100 Not Out it’s a very warm WELCOME BACK to Heather Lee!
