Amazing People – Heather Lee: The 92-Year-Old Race Walker

By Hope 103.2Thursday 14 Mar 2019Hope Breakfast with Sam & Duncan

Listen: Sam and Duncan chat to Heather Lee, the 92-year-old walking sensation from Richmond.

At 92, Heather Lee is unstoppable. Having taken up elite race walking in her eighties, Heather currently holds eight Australian- and five world-records for her age group.

Incredibly, Heather is one of the few people who walks the full 24 hours of the Hawkesbury Relay for Life. This March, Heather is aiming to walk over 300 km in honour of her late husband, as an ambassador for The March Charge, run by the Cancer Council.

Heather was recently named the 2019 Senior Australian of the Year for NSW and Sam and Duncan got to chat with her – about her journey as an elite athlete, her routine, and what keeps her motivated.
