Vegetarians all over New Zealand should take note. There’s no way Beef and Lamb Evers-Swindell would’ve won Gold without a bit of meat in their diet.
And there’s no way Val Vili’s massive arms are pumped full of carrots and tabuleh. Oh yes, meat was the winner on the day. And Poi E.
The back of the medals each have a jade inset
It’s about time someone released a Poi E remix, non? I can dust off my poi in a matter of seconds. Just give me the word.
Congratulations to all our Olympic successes.
Ignore the dodgy TVNZ coverage, with commentators trying to get Mahe Drysdale to blame his illness for a respectable bronze medal effort, and where the rowing expert called the lane numbers as the Evers-Swindell race placings. Duh!
Does anyone else do a double take every time Peter hands over to Toni Street? It’s like TVNZ realised Tony Veitch was out, so purposefully found the closest sounding name reporter they could find to make our ears prick up every time she is crossed to.
Although, that theory would mean that Toni Street is actually a real-life reporter. I totally have to question that, what with her evil interview style; she crossed the line for Lita when she told the crying womens rowing pair (who placed 5th) that they have no hope at the next Olympics either. Miaow. Keep your predictions of the future to yourself Toni wannabe-Veitchy Street; congratulate the athletes, ask questions about the race, then eff off with your rude remarks about the next games. One Olympics at a time, eh? Jeesh.
So, back to the celebrating – Lita loved attempting to sing our National Anthem in Te Reo Maori, and impressing the cat with an estimated 35% accuracy rate.
