Rate this:
It is ironic that New Zealand, first country to give women the vote, and a nation of avid sports fans, has never celebrated the achievements of its 'Golden Girls', those dedicated and talented women who achieved the pinnacle of sporting success - an Olympic Gold medal. So far we have six - and their achievements are finally are being honoured, as one of the lead-in events for the 2012 London Olympics. From long jumper Yvette Williams (now Yvette Corlett) to windsurfer Barbara Kendall, cyclist Sarah Ulmer, rowers Georgina and Caroline Evers-Swindell to shot-putter Valerie Vili, the courage, strength and sheer guts of these extraordinary women are combined as their stories, achievements and sporting records are brought together in a single volume.
