We couldn’t possibly leave Sophie Pascoe out of the Inspirational New Zealanders category.
Sophie won two gold medals at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (you can read all about it here) and that makes seven world Paralympic gold medals to this date.
What an amazing achievement and how inspiring!
UC bio-mechanics expert, Matt Ingram is Sophie’s performance analyst. He works with Sophie to refine her technique, run a strength and conditioning programme and help keep her free of overuse injuries.
If you consider yourself a high performing athlete then it’s so worth taking a look at how the Sports Science Centre can help you.
Well done Sophie – you make us all so proud!
