‘Queen of the Green’ will be Missed

Millie Khan, one of NZ’s best-loved and most successful sportspeople, died unexpectedly of a heart attack in Rotorua aged 65. Khan took up lawn bowls at 38 and was representing NZ 9 years later. She won silver in the singles at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in Auckland, bronze in the same event at Kuala Lumpur in 1998, and held 12 national bowls titles in singles, pairs and fours. NZ Herald: “Most gracious in defeat or victory, ‘Magical’ Millie Khan was one of sport’s great characters.”
