Congrats To Darcina
Monday, 29 August 2016 10:13

Congratulations to our Olympian, Darcina Manuel (GIS EC) who reached the round of 16 following a good victory against her Russian opponent in the first round of the -57kg category. She then lost by Yuko to the eventual bronze medallist, for an offical final placing of 9th.

This result met the criteria that were established by the NZOC and clearly justified the selection. There has been some publicity around the cost per medal and the amounts provided to various sports by HPSNZ for their campaigns - some of whom were more successful than others. Unfortunately, the criteria for financial assistance remains as podium performance at World and Olympic level, so the ability to gain such funding remains extremely challenging for global sports like ours.

Once again, well done Darcina and enjoy a well-earned rest before the international season kicks in again.
