Massey students and alumni flying the flag for NZ


Massey University is well represented at next month's Commonwealth Games.



Dr Rachel Batty is heading to the Commonwealth
Games.

At least 35 current students and alumni are competing at next month’s Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast. Around 250 athletes are representing New Zealand, making it the largest ever team.

Massey University’s high performance programme coordinators are getting news on a daily basis of more students and alumni who have qualified for the Games, so we will be updating this list as information comes to hand.

The Games kick off on April 4 and run until April 15, with more than 6600 athletes and officials taking part, including Dr Rachel Batty from the School of Sport, Exercise and Nutrition, who will be working as part of the athletic events presentation team at the Games. Part of her role will be to ensure the athletic road events (including the Marathon) run to schedule. She will also be assisting with coordinating the venues and routes, and managing event announcements.

The University congratulates all the athletes on their selection and wishes them success and enjoyment at the Games.
