About

The 1992 Olympic year kicked off in spectacular fashion for New Zealand as Annelise Coberger won this country's first Winter Olympic medal when she claimed silver in slalom skiing in Albertville. Later that same year in Barcelona, New Zealand's sole gold medal went to Bruce's sister Barbara Kendall in women's boardsailing. Yachting secured other medals in the Star Class where Don Cowie and Rod Davis won silver, the 470s where Leslie Egnot and Jan Shearer also won silver and Craig Monk who won a bronze in the Finn. The three day equestrian team won a silver medal as did swimmer Danyon Loader in the 200 metres butterfly. Bronze medals went to Gary Anderson in cycling's 4000 metres individual pursuit, Lorraine Moller in the marathon, David Tua in heavyweight boxing and Blyth Tait in the individual three day event.
