United States long jump legend Mike Powell will be helping launch the IAAF Nestle Kids’ Athletics programme in New Zealand later this month. The initiative is set to hit New Zealand with the official launch of the project through a series of events up and down the country. The tour begins on February 26 with a date at the Waitakere Douglas Track and Field Stadium as part of the Douglas Waitakere Athletics Festival. All activities take place within a 60x40m area in which equipment can be easily transported and put together.
