A look through our 100 Year History by the decades
In 2020, the New Zealand Team celebrates its centenary and 100 Years of the silver fern at Olympic Games.
It was on August 14th 1920 at the Antwerp Olympic Games that the first New Zealand Team marched into an Olympic Opening Ceremony as an independent nation, competing in black with a silver fern.
New Zealand athletes had previously attended the Olympic Games in 1908 and 1912 as part of the Australasian Team.
