NZ Sporting History: Hamish Bond

From Afternoons, 2:30 pm on 23 May 2024

A three-time Olympic gold medal-winning rower, a Commonwealth Games bronze for road cycling, and soon-to-be Team New Zealand cycler, Hamish's athletic career knows no bounds.

In partnership with Eric Murray, he went unbeaten in pairs rowing for 7 years, winning 69 consecutive races.

For their unrivaled achievements the pair were awarded two Halberg Supreme Awards and three Team of the Year awards, not to mention the Halberg Champion of the Decade award for the 2010s.
