Lisa Corrigan

Lisa Corrigan put her home of Blacktown, NSW, on the map when she became the fastest Australian to ever run the mile.

Corrigan’s burst of 4:22.66 in March 2007, was the standout performance in a year that established her as one of Australia’s premier middle distance runners. Throughout those 12 months, Corrigan set personal best standards in the mile, 800m (2:01.59) and the 1500m (4:05.25), the latter of which also chiselled her in as fourth-fastest over the distance on the Australian all-time list.

It was a standout period that followed Corrigan’s senior debut for Australia at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games, at which she came in second in her 1500m heat to progress to the final. Corrigan’s breakout 2007 earned her a maiden World Championships call-up in that year as she headed to Osaka, Japan, with the accolades to keep coming when, 12 months later, she made her Olympic debut in Beijing.
