Peter Larkins is nothing short of a trailblazer. After competing as an elite athlete for Australia in steeplechase and middle distance running, he has carved a career as one of the most recognisable doctors in Australia. Peter’s official title is Specialist Sports & Exercise Physician but that only paints a small part of his story. We discuss his encounters with world heavyweights Muhammad Ali, Carl Lewis and Jerry Seinfeld, and why Sebastian Coe had such a profound impact on him. We also tackle how he balanced an elite sporting career with medical study, the mindset of a surgeon, why he is so passionate about mental health along with the overwhelming benefits of exercise. A jammed packed episode filled with gems.
