The first round of announcements about the NZ team for track and field at the London Olympics were made today at the end of the National Champs. Valerie Adams (shotput), Nick Willis (1500m), Kimberly Smith (marathon) and Stuart Farquhar (javelin) were named. The next and final round will be named after the end of qualification on the 8th July.
It was great to see the selectors have heptathletes Sarah Cowley, Veronica Torr and I in their sights, as mentioned in the NZOC press release. It would be so awesome to have three NZ athletes in the same event in London, can't remember the last time that happened at the Olympics for NZ, lets do it ladies!!
