Micheal Warren: how the Olympics shaped NZ's identity

From Sunday Morning, 7:50 am on 16 December 2018

Sport and politics have always fascinated Victoria University of Wellington graduate Micheal Warren. This week he graduated with a PhD in Political Science that combined the two subjects - his thesis was about how New Zealand's participation in the Olympic Games has shaped our national identity. He says while rugby is the game that's foremost of mind as New Zealand's sport, our participation in the Olympic Games over the years represents something unique about the New Zealand psyche.
