Steve Gurney’s story
Steve Gurney was one of New Zealand’s most successful athletes. He quit his job to train and compete in multisport, winning the Coast to Coast a record nine times and representing New Zealand twice.
“At that stage, I didn’t think about what would come after sport,” he tells Newshub.
“I was naive and extremely passionate.
“I had 20 years of purpose, and that was to win, to dominate my sport and to earn income.”
