  1. Soooooo proud of how well our team has done these games. Completely exceeded all expectations!
  2. Haha thanks mate, back in NZ. Been in Auckland for a couple of years now.
  3. Pretty promising when you think we've still got pretty good gold medal chances in the men's pairs and single sculls.
  4. What a race! To go from 4th to 1st in 500m was a pretty epic achievement.
  5. Woohoo! Nathan Cohen and Joseph Sullivan win NZ's first gold at the games. Good one boys.
  6. I've spent most of friday and the weekend vulunteering at Auckland airport translating for Japanese tourist and students. There was a group of NSW police and US civil defence officers who came through on transit to Christchurch and the whole terminal erupted into cheers and applause. It was really quite moving.
  7. 98 confirmed dead 226 still missing
  8. Earthquakes are quite commmon here in NZ but this one in Christchurch has occured on a hidden fault line which was unknown of until the quake in september last year. However becasue NZ is so sparsely outside of Auckland, deaths are quite uncommon. We've been expecting 'the big one' for ages but everyone expected it to be in Wellington due to it being built directly on the Ohariu fault line. 75 confirmed dead. 300 still missing.
  9. holy f#ck, PM just put death toll at 65!
  10. Pifft, like thats going to stop me.
  11. God, the more the infomation comes in the more tragic this appears. The TV is urging people all over the country to go give blood, just about to head up to the local hosptial to book in to donate.
  12. Kevin Rudd was just on TVNZ. multiple fatalities confirmed.
  13. Civil defence minister just said there are unconfirmed fatalities.
  14. Whoa ok, TV is showing pictures of whole office buildings having come down. Reports of bodies being removed. ****!
  15. Another huge quake just hit Christchurch, measured 6.3 and much more shallow and close to the city than the intial quake. Apparently buildings have come down.
  16. That will without a doubt go down as one of thr grestest netball matches in history! Good on ya girls!
  17. I don't think people are too fussed, it's quite funny really. Still it would be great if we could get the gold in sevens and the netball. To be honest I think Kiwis are more amped to see Samoa winning 3 golds so far, pretty awesome for them. - Also the games have been over shadowed a bit by the local body elections and a few scandals in the media.
  18. New Zealand’s cyclists are doing well when you consider team only won one 2 silver and 2 bronze in Melbourne, compeered to the 4 silvers and 3 bronze we’ve got so far in Delhi. Plus we have real gold medal chances in the women’s individual pursuit and the road time trial.
  19. Did't even make the finals. To be honest Jan Cameron (NZ swimming coach) came out and said before the race he wasn't going to make it.
  20. Totally agree. TVNZ are just using him as a gimick.
  21. I'll be awake to the wee hours of the morning grading papers so this is a welcome distraction.
  22. Apparently the NZOC are just about to make an announcement as to whether the NZ team will compete.
  23. Vegemite hands down! On toast with avocado. Nom nom.
