If you are a keen follower of Australian athletics, Jessica Hull needs no introduction. Earlier in 2020, Jessica went on an Australian national record setting streak, kicking it off with a 5000m new national record of 14:43.80 at the diamond league in Monaco, followed one month later by the national record in the 1500m 4:00.42 set at the diamond league in Berlin. And then just less than two weeks later, Jessica ran another Australian National record in the 3000m in Doha 8:36.03. Now the 5000m record was an 18 year record held by a prior featured performer of the show, Benita Willis, Episode 20 and Jess’s 1500m time has her poised to be potentially the first Australian woman to ever run sub four minutes in the coming years for the 1500m.
Needless to say, Jessica is a huge talent and on this episode, you'll hear Jess share around the highs, lows and learnings, the origins of her athletic days, the role of her family and support team in helping Jess perform at her physical best, the influence of time spent on scholarship at the University of Oregon in the US, the role of strength and conditioning in Jess’s performances, fueling for the work required and Jess survives the physical performance round and issues a doubleheader on the physical challenge for the week. Here is my conversation with Australian National record holder, the 1500m, 3000m and 5000m Jessica Hull.
