Champion Paralympian swimmer Sophie Pascoe was the guest this week for Six and a Song.

Winning a total of nine gold medals and six silver medals, she is New Zealand’s most successful Paralympian.

However, she is not done just yet. She told Simon Barnett and Phil Gifford that she does not regret all the time she has invested into her sport and she still loves what she does. 

"I'm constantly wanting more out of myself, and that's part of why I keep going."

Simon and Phil talked with her about her motivations, the controversy around drugs in swimming, what she gets up to outside of swimming, and of course one of her favourite songs to play out.
