Monday Sport Blast From The Past: Jonathan Wyatt

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Who can remember Jonathan Wyatt?
In 2005, he stormed to victory in the World Mountain Running Champion on Mt Victoria. In front of what was called a "boisterous crowd" of 10,000 Wyatt blitzed the field.
Wyatt is a six-time world mountain running champion and an eight-time winner of the world mountain running grand prix series.
He also competed at two Olympics and held national records in a range of middle distance events.
These days he lives in Italy, with his Italian wife Antonelle Confortola.
He was elected president of the World Running Association Council in 2017.
He began his athletic career in the Hutt Valley.

Come on Wellingtonians, start scanning!

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Stuff Wellington is launching a campaign to get people to start using the
Covid-19 tracer app.
New Zealand is still exposed to the new, more contagious, strains of Covid-19 despite the Government recently bolstering its border and pre-departure defences.
The number of daily Covid-19 tracer app scans has dropped from one million a day, at its height, to the current low of 300,000.
That means that if the more contagious variants get into the community, it will be hard to trace contacts.
Are you scanning? If not why not?

If you do not want your comments used by Stuff please put NFP.
