In total, New Zealand has now appeared at 25 Summer Games and 16 Winter Games, represented by a total 1,387 Olympic athletes. Just a few of the prominent names include Peter Snell, Nick Willis, Annelise Coberger, Lydia Ko, Valerie Adams, Tomas Walsh, Danyon Loader, Mark Todd, Russell Coutts, Lorraine Moller, Eliza McCartney, Ian Ferguson, John Walker, and Barbara Kendall - not to mention multiple rowers, rugby-er's, cyclists, triathletes, snowboarders, hockey stars, and many more. Congratulations!
