About

New Zealand made their first venture into the Winter Olympics. The team of five nearly didn't make it to Oslo, when the Games Association believed it wasn't up to the required standard to represent New Zealand. The Games Association wasn't impressed when the team returned having managed to finish in the bottom fifteen per cent of the field in their respective events.
