Push, Pull and Pedal - Olympians from Whanganui

The road to the Olympic Games is long and hard. It takes blood, sweat and tears for athletes to reach the pinnacle of their sports. This special exhibition shows you what it takes to reach the Olympic Games and make the dream of sporting success become a reality.

Whanganui has a number of Olympic sporting heroes including World Champion and Olympic rower Philippa Baker-Hogan, Olympic medallist Gary Anderson and his coach Ron Cheatley. We show some of their Olympic Games treasures and send best wishes from Whanganui to all Kiwi athletes competing in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
