Sophie Calabrese won GOLD medal in the Quad Scull at the CanAmMex Regatta in Mexico City this summer. She talks about the race, competing, the intense selection process, training, coaching herself, backwards treadmilling, how music and sports relate, the Head of the Charles, and not losing. This is an excellent episode to share with high school athletes or their parents, with rowers, and athletes that need just a little extra motivation to get a bit more from their sport. Sophie loves being competitive, loves being an athlete, and is pursuing elite rowing with real smarts.
