Tune in to The Spinoff to see the second season of Scratched: Aotearoa's Lost Sporting Legends to check out more stories about New Zealand athletes whose incredible feats have been forgotten or have simply been underappreciated. The first season won Best Sports Programme at the 2020 NZ TV Awards, and we're proud highlight the WIFT members involved in both series: Kelly Chen, Amber Easby, Natalie Wilson and Madeleine Chapman.

Episode one tells the story of swimmer Meda McKenzie (above left) - one of New Zealand's greatest endurance athletes.

Other episodes feature revolutionary long jumper Tuariki Delamere (above right) and pioneering skateboarder Lee Ralph, triple-international Jane Te Hira, gymnast Angela Walker and weightlifting legend Precious McKenzie.
