New Patron For JNZ
Thursday, 01 October 2015 08:34

Following the sad passing last year of our long term Patron (Joe McManemin) the Congress recently elected his successor.

JNZ's new Patron is Rob Waddell. In addition to being an Olympic and World champion, America's Cup grinder, and Chef de Mission for the 2014 Commonwealth Games (where he showed great interest in and support for the NZL Judo team) and 2016 Olympics, Rob is a shodan and was a member of Henkada club.

We look forward to having Rob re-involved with Judo, and seeing him at events amongst his busy schedule.

A more comprehensive bio is attached;
