Allie Ostrander on Joining the Brooks Beasts, Boise State Success, Calling Out Body Image Criticism
“It’s OK to talk about someone’s backstory or how they got there but just pay attention to what you’re bringing the audience’s eyes toward. It shouldn’t be what the athletes look like. It should be their story and their ability, why that’s impressive and why what they’re doing is incredible.”
Allie Ostrander joins the CITIUS MAG Podcast to discuss her recent decision to forego her remaining NCAA eligibility with Boise State to turn professional and sign with the Brooks Beasts. We look back at her success with the Broncos, which includes three NCAA steeplechase titles, 13 All-American honors and eight Mountain West titles. We look ahead to what she could possibly focus on for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Trials with such a crowded and tough steeplechase field, overcoming injury and her viral Instagram post that called out criticism of women’s body image talk during races.
We also took many of your questions that were submitted on Twitter and Instagram.
