Spirited Conversations

Sandy from Stepneyville

Kevin Norquay:
"When it comes to New Zealand sport, money breeds unhappiness"

Kevin Norquay is Stuff's Chief News Director (Sport). A journalist since 1985, he has worked as a sports, news and political journalist, covered three OIympic Games and three elections as well as numerous other major events. He also has the distinction of once being described as a disgrace to western journalism by Winston Peters.

Kevin will lead the discussion on the role of sports in New Zealand culture - how professional sport has sucked money and elite athletes out of community sport, how that money has put untoward mental and physical pressure on athletes and how the news media has followed the money, leaving community sports behind.

Venue: Yaza Café, Montgomery Square

Date: Wednesday, 28 April

Time: 7.30-9.30pm (meals & drinks available from 6pm)
