Well, that's it for another year!
The Board and staff at Athletics New Zealand wish everyone a very Merry CHristmas and Happy Holidays.
It’s been a fantastic year of athletics with unprecedented success at the Rio Olympics backed up by medals at the World Indoor Championships, a wonderful medal haul at the Rio Paralympics and fantastic performances right down the line to schools and junior events. Sixteen medals at major international events during the year is an outstanding result for the sport.
At grassroots we have seen an increased level of membership engagement from initiatives that have resulted in increased programme delivery and value to members.
None of this success would happen without the hundreds of volunteers in the sport, putting in thousands of hours to make everything run smoothly and ensuring that our many members are supported by coaches, officials and others administering the sport. We owe these people a big debt of gratitude.
Athletics New Zealand's national office will be closed from the afternoon of Friday 23 December and re-opens on Monday 9 January 2017.
