Episode 57: Kate Strong: Three times World Record Holder and World Champion Triathlete

In this episode, we talk to Kate Strong, the vegan athlete who has secured three Guinness World Records recently in a gruelling challenge on a static bike.

Kate, who is also a champion triathlete, now holds the record for completing the furthest distance on a static bike over 24 hours.

She began the challenge at 3 pm on May 26 in Bristol, UK. In order to beat the records, she had to cycle over 35.3km in one hour and 348km in 12 hours. We chat to her about her incredible journey as a vegan, an athlete and as a woman.

Helen and Faye’s chat
Viva!’s Head of Communications, Faye, joins Helen to discuss the importance of strong female and vegan role models and what work still needs to be done for veganism to become even more widespread and normalised.
