A blast from the past has just surfaced. This photo was taken in 1973 at the Pan Pacific Games held in Canada. Countries competing were USA, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. From the left we have Bevan Smith, Myself, Phil Kear and Richard Endean which was the NZ 400m relay team. We finished 2nd to the USA in all three meetings and broke the NZ record on each Occassion. In Victoria Island we finished within a metre of the USA team that had the fastest 400m time in the world for that season. Great racing, great team mates ๐Ÿ‘

Locomotivation and Steve Erkkila Our mission is to provide safe, friendly and knowledgeable exercise and motivation training sessions. Our clients enjoy a fun, non-pressured working environment in which they can achieve their personal goals, including weight loss, toning, confidence, fitness or speed improvement.

COVID has impacted on every NZer in many different ways over several months and has caused so much stress, worry and anxiety to so many. Thought this quote hits the mark perfectly on compassion and understanding.

In my day sport was known as a great equaliser of men and women and would unite nations together. Man how things have changed for the utmost worst. Shocking the behaviour we have seen and read since the Cup Final last Monday by ignorant, racist lowlifes. Worst of all they are sharing their pathetic views on our young. Time for the normally silent majority to stand up and be counted. โšฝ๏ธ โœ”๏ธ

An athletes bond with their coach is so very important. We both share in the athletes improvement and successes, on the flip side I also believe their athletes failures to some extent are a reflection of their coach. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฟ
