Anthony Mosse

Success has been the hallmark of Anthony Mosse’s career as an Olympic and Commonwealth Games swimmer, a high achieving student and businessman. Described as the “standard bearer for New Zealand competitive swimming through the 1980s”, Anthony’s swimming highlights include a bronze medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, gold at the 1990 Auckland Commonwealth Games, gold and silver in the 1986 Edinburgh Commonwealth Games and second in the World Championships in the same year.

Anthony says masters sports allows him to be social and competitive at the same time. “When I’m training for a masters event I find I’m more conscious of my health and wellbeing in general which is a great by-product.”

According to Anthony, World Masters Games 2017 will showcase Auckland and New Zealand to thousands of competitors and visitors from around the world who will invest in and promote the country. “I think it’ll also give anyone who is interested in attending the chance to see some great athletes perform,” he says.

The US has been Anthony’s home base for many years now. He gained a BA (Hons) from Stanford University and later completed an MBA there. Anthony and his family live in San Francisco where he is Vice President and Treasurer for Virgin America and the New Zealand Honorary Consul. He has been a regular commentator for TVNZ at Olympic and Commonwealth Games including Melbourne in 2006 and Beijing in 2008.
