Enjoying being part of my third World Masters Games, especially at home in Kiwiland.
International and national sports management specialist Susie Simcock has a cv which is probably unrivalled in this country. She is best known as New Zealand’s “Mrs Squash” as a player, manager and administrator and was the first woman elected President of the World Squash Federation. Susie has been a long time NZ Olympic Committee member and is both a New Zealand Olympic Order holder and Halberg SPARC Leadership awardee.
Masters sport is a real passion for Susie – not only has she been a medal winning competitor, she has also applied her considerable sports management experience as a Governor of the International Masters Games Association from 2002 to 2010. She says masters sport is a wonderful opportunity for passionate sports people to have an ongoing involvement in their chosen sport – participating, competing, having fun while keeping fit and healthy together with the many other benefits that sport provides.
Golf is Susie’s current sport of choice and she is keen to once again take part in a World Masters Games competition. “I’m excited to be part of the very special opportunity World Masters Games 2017 provides for Kiwis to be inspired and challenged to join sports people from around the world in the biggest multisport, multinational sporting event on the planet.”
