CP Media Wednesday night live 15 September 2021

Thanks to EVO CYCLES NZ for sponsoring this podcast

7:30 – Scott Martlew

Scott Martlew represented New Zealand in the recent Paralympics held in Tokyo in the 200m Kayak Sprint and 200m Outrigger Canoe Sprint. Scott sustained a thigh injury during a First XV rugby game in 2010 which then developed into an infection and subsequently over the days following lost his leg. Over the past 10 years Scott has developed into a World Class paddler and went to Tokyo as a real medal chance. Tonight we discuss his 10 year journey through to his final of the 200m KL2 Kayak Sprint event.

37:00 – Anna Grimaldi

Anna Grimaldi joins the show to share with us her story and Tokyo Paralympic experience. Going in as defending T47 Long Jump champion has its benefits but also has its challenges as she dealt with the pressure and expectation to perform. “In Rio I won by accident and this time we did it on purpose” We discuss that build up, the event and her learnings from competing and succeeding at the highest level.
