Up and coming middle-distance runner feeling the 'blackcurrant effect'

on May 18, 2023

Stella Sampson, a competitive track runner, recently tried CurraNZ and quickly noticed the difference it made to her running.

‘I am a 20-year-old middle-distance athlete and have been running for just over two years. Prior to this I was a ballet dancer, training full time. 

'I trialled the CurraNZ blackcurrant capsules and felt a positive change in my energy and training. I am recovering very well post sessions, which allows me to get the most out of every training.

'I have big goals for my running, long term I would love to make the New Zealand team.

'My aim is to climb up the NZ ranks in the 800m and 1500m events. In my two years of running I have made the Auckland team for Cross Country and Road Race Nationals twice and consistently improved my PBs.

'One of my proudest accomplishments was lowering my 5,000m track time by 3 minutes in just 7 months. I am a very driven person and in it for the long game.

'The blackcurrant capsules have been going very well – I have seen a difference in my energy levels and recovery post training.’
