Olympic-Bound Canadians: Women’s 800m with Melissa Bishop-Nriagu, Lindsey Butterworth and Maddy Kelly

Melissa Bishop winning the women's 800m

This week we’re kicking off a new mini-series called “The Shakeout Podcast: Olympic-Bound Canadians”. We’re now less than 6 weeks out from the start of the Tokyo Olympics, and Athletics Canada is poised to send a bigger team this year than in almost any other Olympics of the last 2 decades. Over the next several weeks, we will sit down with some of our country’s best runners who are, in all likelihood, Tokyo-bound.

We’ll chat about athletes’ preparation for the Games, their goals, their major competitors and other exciting storylines to follow. Our first episode features the Women’s 800m with Melissa Bishop-Nriagu, Lindsey Butterworth and Maddy Kelly.
