Prime Minister's Dinner

NZOC Prime Minister's Dinner 5 August 2015      

On August 5 over 500 of New Zealand’s sporting community descended upon the Viaduct Events Centre on Auckland’s waterfront. This was at the invitation of Prime Minister John Key to mark one-year out from the 2016 Olympic Games to be held in Rio, Brazil. The New Zealand Olympic Committee marked the occasion by launching their ‘Be the Inspiration’ campaign - a rallying cry to all New Zealanders to support the Team. This campaign interweaves the essence of what it means to represent New Zealand with the vibrancy, colour and culture of Rio upon whose stage this representation will be played out. 

Representing GymSports NZ at the function were Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist – David Bishop; Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympics gold medallist – Dylan Schmidt; and CEO – Tony Compier. “Wow! This is where it starts to get real.” said Dylan as he rubbed shoulders with some of NZ’s Olympic greats. 

NZOC Prime Minister's Dinner 5 August 2015

David was impressed with the new campaign: “New Zealanders shouldn’t underestimate the value of their messages and best wishes. They are truly inspirational to us athletes when we are a long way from home and in need of a boost.” GymSports NZ 

CEO – Tony Compier was also conscious of the timing: “We are at a critical point where World Championship qualifiers are almost finished and athletes with their sights on Rio are preparing for a big finish to the year. This event just serves to highlight how close it is and how prestigious it would be for gymsports athletes to be part of something really special."
