Nikki Hamblin was dubbed New Zealand’s Queen of the track following a breathtaking sprint which saw her move from last place to second in the 800m final of the 2010 Commonwealth Games! It was her second silver medal in Delhi after the 1500m, each time drawing level with the race favourite Kenyans.

At the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games the New Zealand netball team took on Australia in the gold medal match. The match was the longest game in international netball, lasting 84 minutes and going into double extra-time. After the initial extra-time it was decided whichever team took a two-point lead first would be crowned champions. New Zealand prevailed and the ecstatic response from our athletes showed just how much this success meant to them!

In the men’s triathlon race at the Melbourne 2006 Comm Games Bevan Docherty was unable to catch up to the race leader so duelled it out with Australian world No 1 Peter Robertson for the silver. Robertson continually surged in an effort to break Dochertys spirit and willpower, but the New Zealander absorbed everything thrown at him then willed himself into a decisive lead to take the medal. In the women’s race Samantha Warriner won silver ahead of fellow Kiwi Andrea Hewitt who took bronze! Another Kiwi, Debbie Tanner, came in fourth.
