NZ Sporting History: Marise Chamberlain

From Afternoons, 2:30 pm on 4 April 2024

Marise Chamberlain is one of our best ever track competitors and only woman from New Zealand to have won a track medal at the Olympics.

During her impressive career she held five world records across four-hundred and forty (440) yards, won silver in the 800 metres at the 1962 Perth Commonwealth Games and bronze over the same distance at the 1964 Olympics

She joins us today for NZ Sporting history.
