NZL Olympic Judo Update
Monday, 08 August 2016 09:57

Darcina Manuel (GIS EC) steps onto the mat tomorrow to compete in the -57kg category at the Rio Olympics. She has drawn the Russian athlete in the first round.

NZL team official Esther Velloza (GIS EC) sent an update earlier in the week;

"We were finally welcomed into the NZL team today with a powhiri. We had missed previous powhiri due to our training schedule, was worth the wait as we were part of the equestrian and gymnastic group, an honour to have sir mark Todd part of the group (8x Olympian ). We are getting into a nice flow here. No fires in our building!"

The event is being screened on Sky Sports (Pop-up 3 scheduled to begin 1255am) and Prime.

We wish Darcina all the very best!
