Catriona Bisset

Catriona Bisset (athletics) is making her Commonwealth Games debut and aiming to become the first Australian woman to win the 800m since Judy Peckham at Edmonton in 1978. Catriona started running aged 7 at West Creek Redbacks club in Canberra, showing plenty of potential as a teenager before later taking a break to renew her mental health. She started running again while at university and resumed racing in 2016, later moving to Melbourne to train under Peter Fortune. She claimed the Australian 800m title in 2019, breaking the two-minute mark a week later, the first Australian woman to do so in over a decade. Bisset broke Charlene Rendina’s 43-year-old Australian record in 2019 and then set a new mark in 2021, just prior to the Tokyo Olympics, but was unable to make it through the heats at the Games. Bisset has a master’s degree in architecture and Diploma of Languages (Chinese) from University of Melbourne.
