A sad day

Today at training we learnt of the terrible news that Hungarian canoeist Gyorgy Kolonics died in training preparing for what would have been his fifth Olympic Games. Gyorgy was a double Olympic Champion.

I didnt know him personally but I know myself and others in the New Zealand team were shocked and saddened by the news.

On behalf of the New Zealand team I pass on our deepest sympathy to family, friends and teammates of Gyorgy.
