Winter in Auckland, New Zealand is by no means snow and too many single digit days...fingers crossed! However, after our glorious kiwi summer there has been a considerable change in temperature. In preparation for this the chimney has been swept and in the weekend a good load of firewood was stacked. Watching videos of Allan Wells preparing for the 1980 Moscow Olympics in horrible conditions in Scotland confirmed to us that the Scottish summer next year may not be too sunny! So it's good for the soul to prepare in all conditions and to make sure we get out in the elements to cover all bases.
I always enjoy speaking with school groups and last week I went to Northcote College to talk with the Sports Elite Class. It was great to meet you guys and hear about all the different sports you are excelling at. There was such a range of sportsmen and women from synchronised swimmers, go kraters to water polo players I enjoyed hearing about your talents. All the best for your sporting endeavours!
