Fifth Olympics for Kendall
NZ sporting icon Barbara Kendall has earned her fifth Olympic Games spot. Kendall described her early selection for Beijing 2008 as “awesome” after it was announced at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. Kendall has already won a gold, silver and bronze Olympic medal, and is a four-time world champion. She joins canoeist Ian Ferguson and equestrians Mark Todd and Andrew Nicholson as athletes who have represented NZ at the Olympics five times.
