Brent Newdick cemented his place in the New Zealand Olympic team after winning his event at the Australian National Track and Field Championships in April this year, scoring 8057 points and beating out his closest rival by more than 400 points. Brent showed his caliber by winning four of the ten events and by placing in the top 3 all but once during the competition. At this meet he also achieved personal bests in the discus and long jump.
Brent has a personal best of 8114 points which he produced last year at the world’s premier multi event meet, the Hypo Meeting in Glotzis, Austria. Brent has represented New Zealand at two Commonwealth Games, finishing 4th in Melbourne in 2006 and 2nd in Delhi in 2010. This will be his first Olympics.
