Eilish McColgan is a Scottish middle-distance athlete who has represented Team GB in the last 3 Olympic games - initially in the 3000 metres steeplechase, then the 5000 metres and in Tokyo in both 5,000 and 10,000 meters. She is now targeting a 4th Olympics in Paris, but this time in the marathon.
Eilish comes from amazing running pedigree (she is the daughter of Olympic silver medal runner Liz McColgan and Northern Irish record holder Peter McColgan), so I wanted to find out how she continues to progress through different running disciplines, the pressures of growing up in an accomplished running family and how Tokyo compared to London and Rio given all of the COVID restrictions.
