My guest this week is Dotsie Bausch, a person I have a tremendous amount of respect for.
She had a prolific professional cycling career that produced a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games, eight US national championships, two Pan American gold medals, and a world record! She’s a plant-based athlete and the oldest ever to medal in her sport. Highly accomplished and an absolute machine on two wheels!
And while most of us think of Olympians as these bigger than life characters…they are human, they feel pain, they suffer loss and deal with real-life issues just like you and me. Olympians are made from the effort and struggle that they’ve endured. Dotsie is no exception! Before the cycling career, she had to face, and conquer, a serious psychological eating disorder that almost took her life!
Now retired from competition, she pours her passion into missions to change, and save lives.
In this episode, we discuss the aforementioned struggles, her plant-based transition, the Olympic journey, and several other critical topics, including her most recent work through her non-profit, Switch4Good.
I hope that you enjoy our conversation in this episode titled “Compassion Over Medals” with Dotsie Bausch.
