OR­DER OF THE CARTER

The Tribune (NZ) - - VIEWS CONVERSATIONS -

In your ar­ti­cle about Olympian Hamish Carter’s visit to Palmer­ston North, you con­clude by say­ing that Prime Min­is­ter John Key is the most high-pro­file guest at Ro­tary’s Youth Plus mo­ti­va­tional event se­ries.

I have to dis­agree. Mr Key is merely the prime min­is­ter of a tiny coun­try in a re­mote part of the world, and he only got there by be­ing one of the wealth­i­est men in that coun­try.

Hamish Carter on the other hand is easily the high­est pro­file guest to date. Not only has he per­formed at the high­est level glob­ally in a highly com­pet­i­tive sport for sev­eral years, he has also gained an hon­our that only a few peo­ple can lay claim to – an Olympic gold medal. He IS a star.
