My Sports Hero: Famous New Zealanders Talk about People who Inspired Them
AUTHOR : Gray, Wynne

In researching My Sports Hero, Auckland journalist and author Wynne Gray has spoken to more than 100 prominent New Zealanders and asked them who their sports hero was, and why. The answers range hugely. With some heroes, there was a close personal connection; with others it was a famous person admired from afar. Some chose iconic New Zealanders, such as Sir Edmund Hillary, Sir John Walker, Peter Snell, Sir Colin Meads, Yvette Williams and John Reid. Others went for teachers, parents or friends who had inspired them. These are their stories. They are rich in humour and nostalgia, and when read as a collection they provide a moving snapshot of some of the people who have shaped New Zealand. My Sports Hero is full of emotional and stimulating stories. What it does emphasise is that we all need heroes, people to model ourselves on, or draw inspiration from.
