Winning ways for NZ at Youth Winter Olympics

From Summer Report, 8:56 am on 15 January 2020

New Zealand's Campbell Wright has just missed out on a medal at the Youth Winter Olympics in Lausanne, placing 4th in the 7.5km biathlon sprint.

It's New Zealand's best ever international biathlon result.

There are 20 New Zealanders competing at the Winter Youth Olympics across nine different disciplines - all of them aged between 14 and 18.

The team's chef de mission, Jesse Teat, speaks to Leigh-Marama McLachlan from Switzerland.
