A huge congratulations to our alumni students Tone Ng Shui (NZ Sevens) and Kirsten Fisher-Marsters (Cook Island Swimming) who became our 2nd and 3rd ex-BDSC students to become Olympians. They follow in the footsteps of Merissa Gibbens (nee Smith) who represented NZ in Football in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Kirsten was one of the proud flag bearers for the Cook Islands at the opening ceremony and set a personal best and a new Cook Island record in the 100m Breaststroke. Then, as many of you will be aware, the NZ Mens Sevens team came home with silver medals, making Tone our first ever medallist at an Olympic Games. We are all very proud of their achievements on the world stage.
