Jan 2, 2020

Want to know how to become a world-class athlete? In this episode, Rachel asks hockey legend, Kayla Whitelock, that exact question. 

Kayla is known for her calm and composed presence on the field. In this episode, she explains how she developed this skill and how she found her voice. As 17 year old, fresh into the Blacksticks she was nicknamed "mute" by her teammates. Now, the mother of two is a far cry from that youngster that began her Olympic dream 16 years ago. 

Chasing her fairy tale ending, Kayla's persistence and commitment to her dream will etch her into the history books of New Zealand hockey as one of the greatest. Proving to everyone, that age is simply a number and if you have a dream its always worth chasing it.
