We hear from Ironwoman Tamsyn Hayes on prepping for Challenge Wanaka, translating mountain running to the Ironman shuffle, and how she’s had to adapt after the difficult birth of her baby; sheep shearing makes its debut on WiSP Sports as Roysey Maryanne Batey tells us what it’s like to be gearing up for the World Shearing and Wool Handling World Championships in Invercargill next week—only in New Zealand. We talk media coverage of Olympic athletes with Ashley Abbott from the NZ Olympic Association and producer Laura Keown chats with Olympic Heptahlete Sarah Cowley about the Olympic ambassador programme.
