Lisa Carrington leads NZ closing ceremony

carrington

Lisa Carrington has lead the most successful Olympic Team in New Zealand’s history into Maracana Stadium for the closing ceremony at the Rio Games.
The kayaker was chosen for the honour after she became the first New Zealand female athlete to win two medals – gold and bronze – at a single Olympic Games.
We won 18 medals – four of them gold – and are set to officially finish 19th on the medal table.
The New Zealand team was 199 strong, making it the largest Olympic team we have sent to a Games. The team was also the best funded. $115 million was poured into Olympic sports in the four years since London.
Sailing and athletics were the most successful sports, returning four medals.
But chef de mission Rob Waddell said one of the most pleasing aspects of New Zealand’s Rio campaign was the success achieved in a diversity of sports.
