Super gran out-planks community gym youngsters at 78

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Otago News

Jan Wood had never heard of a plank when she joined her local gym 10 years ago. Now she’s smashing records.

The 78-year-old grandmother of 10 surprised her friends at Cromwell’s NRG Health and Fitness by holding a plank – essentially holding a push-position at full stretch – for 21 minutes as part of a September challenge.

She held the gym’s longest plank title for a few days before 66-year-old friend and rival super gran Lesley Garrett “trounced” her by holding a plank for 40 minutes.

After someone topped their time by 45 seconds, they took on the challenge with competitive determination. Read the full story here.

Queenstown man snowboards into town from home after 'weather bomb' hits

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Otago News

A Queenstown man stepped out of his house, jumped on his snowboard and headed into town after snow "belted down” on Monday.

The snow came from a “weather bomb” or “bomb cyclone”, which brought spring snow to parts of the South Island.

Queenstown man Tom Woodward, who lives in the elevated suburb of Fernhill, said people were cheering as he snowboarded past buses and stuck cars this morning.
