By Sharnahea Wilson

 A Kelburn woman achieved her ultimate goal of qualifying for an international Ironman championship and made her way to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii late last year. Sierra Ryland achieved an impressive feat on March 5 2016, managing to land second place at the New Zealand Ironman triathlon held in Taupo.  Two keen sportswomen set an Onslow College record after returning home from a national rowing championship with a bronze medal. Olivia Clark and Constance Stirling were part of a team of six who participated in the Maadi Cup – the largest school sports event in the Southern Hemisphere. Prior to the competition which began on April 2, the team was practicing nine times per week to perfect their skills.  A young rising tennis star helped get her team of three qualified for the world finals held in Hungary late last year.

Dedicated 15-year-old Onlsow College student Tamara Anderson helped the New Zealand under 16 girls’ Junior Federation Cup tennis team qualify for the world finals in October 2016.  Waterside Karori football club’s top side claimed the Capital Premier title when they won 2-0 against hosts Victoria University. Wharfies were the star side for most of the season and were chased hard for the title by Whitby side Western Suburbs who kept the pressure on right up to the end with a final 3-1 win at Island Bay. Wharfies then narrowly missed out on a Central League promotion.  The Johnsonville Rugby Club Colts team grabbed some silverware for the club last season when they downed Wainuiomata 26-3 at Helston Park in June to keep their unbeaten run intact. In doing so they secured the JRD Cup for first-round supremacy in the colts B division and gained promotion to the A division for the next round.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

The curious case of Ronda Rousey “Forget about Ronda”. Those were the words of UFC bantamweight women’s champion, Amanda Nunes after she stopped the former pin-up girl of MMA with a 48-second TKO in Las Vegas. I was fortunate to be in Vegas for the event thanks to some complimentary tickets. The reaction for Rousey was enormous from the 20,000-strong crowd inside the T-Mobile Center. That’s as good as it got for the hometown girl. I was once fully on the Rousey bandwagon, who doesn’t find a good looking woman who kicks butt attractive? However, I lost respect for her

after her first loss because of how she carried herself post-fight. The 29-year-old was making her comeback after losing her title and her vaunted undefeated streak more than a year earlier in a one-sided contest against Holly Holm. If that defeat was embarrassing, this one proved Rousey had become human proof of the phrase “hero to zero” in 12 months. Rousey had 12 months to prepare for her redemption and failed spectacularly. No head movement, no guard, no answers. Despite getting her head punched in, she will pocket $3
