It's time to get back in your boat and row your way to another epic interview as we chat with Olympic gold medal winning rower from Canada Sydney Payne about her time in the sport and her incredible Olympic experiences! We find out about Sydney's unique journey in the sport and which sport she transitioned from that maybe might be seen as somewhat unconventional. We also learn more about rowing in the eights and just how that progression works and how crazy it is to be part of a boat of that size. Added to this we find out just how the extra year affected her preparation for Tokyo, what her parents said to her after watching her win the gold medal at the Olympics and whether or not being on a stamp in Australia might entice her to switch countries for the next Olympics. It's a chat that will get you excited once more so get to listening!
