The challenges of eating disorders are finally being discussed publicly. Jip Vastenburg spoke with media about her eating disorders...

MANCHESTER (GBR): Former European U23 10,000m champion Jip Vastenburg has revealed she has suffered from eating disorders in her career, informs Volkskrant.nl. "I was way too thin. The most bizarre thing I think is that no one ever told me that I didn't look healthy. The symptoms are the same as anorexia. You don't eat enough and you think of yourself as too fat," she said. Vastenburg is now based in Manchester where she is coached by Steve Vernon.
