Our Olympians did us proud

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - YOUR LETTERS -

I have such great ad­mi­ra­tion for all Olympic com­peti­tors, no mat­ter where they come from, as they are all work­ing to­wards a dream... and read­ing the story on Our Olympic Hope­fuls [Au­gust is­sue] in­spired me with pride and joy! New Zealand is a small na­tion, in the big scheme of things, so it was ex­cit­ing to see how our ath­letes, swim­mers, row­ers and other com­peti­tors re­ally showed their met­tle in not only their abil­i­ties but also in their be­hav­iour at Rio. Un­less you have been there, liv­ing in an Olympic vil­lage, it’s re­ally dif­fi­cult to imag­ine what stresses and tri­als they faced each day. From my arm­chair, I avidly watched our Olympians fol­low­ing their dreams, and know I am not alone in say­ing we are a proud na­tion. IS­ABEL ASHMORE
