Meda McKenzie vs the Cook Strait | Scratched: Aotearoa’s Lost Sporting Legends | The Spinoff

One morning in 1978, 15-year-old Meda McKenzie got in the Cook Strait in Wellington and started swimming – just over 12 hours later, she arrived in the South Island. It was just the start of a series of incredible long-distance swims for McKenzie; this is how she did them.
