RIO 2016

“Be the Inspiration” launch

#BeTheInspiration #1YearToGo #RoadtoRio

 

The Rio Olympic Games take place 5 – 21 August 2016.

Competing alongside 10,500 athletes from 206 countries in up to 28 different sports, New Zealand are on track to field a team of more than 200, our biggest team yet.

Rio 2016 will be the first Olympic Games in South America and rugby sevens will make its Olympic debut, with golf returning to the Olympic programme following a 112 year hiatus.

The role of the New Zealand Olympic Committee is to select, organise and lead the team to the Olympic Games ensuring our athletes have the best possible conditions to achieve their goals and inspire pride and excellence in New Zealanders.

Dear Colleagues

Happy New Year, may your arrows fly straight and the gold get larger.

As some of you know my home was burgled while I was overseas late last year and my main lap top stolen. This has caused many difficulties and some things that were in train seem to have got lost. I must have a large parcel of “words” in the ether.

Following this note is the web site message dated 19 December 2013 which has not appeared on the web site although another item I sent that day is there. This is in no way a criticism of the web master who does an amazing job. It is just par for the course at the moment.

Some reports were either too large (and expensive) to be commercially printed or were received after the photocopying shops...

The dates between which clubs may shoot for the Ryan and Fraser Shields are 14 October to 16 December 2013. This is a slight difference to the dates set out in the Tournament rules, the error being as a consequence of the National Secretary being overseas for considerable parts of the last few months. The available shooting period is the same as that set out in the rules but hopefully the weather will be better.

The results, including the score cards, must be with the National Secretary not later than 20 December 2013 . The rules for...

World Games, Cali, Columbia - 25-28 July 2013

Some excellent shooting in hot conditions at the target event at the World Games in Cali, Colombia resulted in new records and PBs for a number of compound archers. 

Barbara Scott was our sole representative, with the one Womens Compound spot being won for New Zealand at the Oceania and Commonwealth Championships held in Whitianga in November 2012, by Elizabeth Ellery-Siaosi.  Elizabeth was unable to attend so Barbara was selected in her place.

In a field of 23 archers Barbara ranked 13th with a very good score of 679. Erika Jones (USA) ranked first with a new world record of 704.  Incredibly, in the Mens Compound the top eleven archers shot either 700 or above.

 

The individual matchplay eliminations through to the semi-finals were also held on the same day.  Despite Barbara’s best...
