About

John Walker continued New Zealand's track dominance with a gold in the 1500 metres at Montreal in 1976, a Games boycotted by several African nations due to New Zealand's sporting contacts with South Africa. In earth-shattering fashion the men's hockey team won the gold medal, beating Australia 1-0 in the final. The men's rowing eight followed the Munich gold with a bronze in 1976, while Dick Quax secured a silver medal in the 5000 metres.
