Marc Le is like a bolt of lightning, both on the field and in person. One thing that stays constant though, is the rugby player’s boyish humour, delivered with a strong Kiwi accent. Though raised in New Zealand, the athlete has represented Malaysia throughout his 10-year sports career, having played for the big leagues like the Marist St Pats in New Zealand and Ricoh Black Rams in Japan. Ever the competitive sportsman, Marc is currently transitioning to greater things, like inspiring KL-ites to be active and healthy through rugby clinics. A peek at his Instagram @the.marc.le will lead you to a wealth of content, from videos demonstrating rapid-fire workouts, to footage of him teaching kids to master slick rugby techniques.
Although Marc claims he’s “not a huge talker,” a growing social media following is drawn to his gregarious and energetic presence, with an unlimited sense of of humour. His worldly outlook and generous attitude has led him to launch an initiative sharing his knowledge in rugby and spread his love for sports. Four months into his Malaysian homecoming, Marc has already carved a name for himself amongst schools and sports societies. We caught up with the poster boy of sports on the field, followed by a lively chat spanning fitness routines to rugby clinics.
