Next in our Inspiring People Interview Series we have the lovely Sophie MacKenzie, Soph is the other half of the Megs and Soph Duo and is also a World Record holder in rowing! We chat to Soph about her training schedule, her healthy lifestyle and her most memorable moment on her journey so far!
Hi, I’m Sophie MacKenzie but Soph for short, I am a full time athlete in Rowing so I get to travel overseas every winter to European summer and race internationally and I Love it! I grew up in Marlborough on a big high country sheep station and have always played a lot of sport. My huge passion for health and well-being didn’t really start until my first year out of high-school and I turned official lightweight and started training harder for rowing which meant I needed to fuel my body more efficiently. So since then especially the last two years I have developed a much more holistic and whole food approach to eating and my general well-being.
