Lovely Lisa

Good Health (Australia) - - Contents -

I wanted to write in to say how much I en­joyed your re­cent in­ter­view with Lisa Curry. It must have taken huge re­solve for her to come to terms with her heart con­di­tion, and change her idea of what she ex­pected her life path would be. I liked how she said peo­ple just as­sume Olympic ath­letes ‘have it all to­gether’, yet they are strug­gling with the same con­cerns and life chal­lenges we all have. We do tend to el­e­vate Olympians to this high sta­tus – and hold them to high stan­dards – whereas they should be given the same com­pas­sion and un­der­stand­ing as any of us. Her ap­proach to health and fit­ness is in­spir­ing, and she looks amaz­ing for 55! – Shel­ley
