The Commission aims to help our most talented sports people get to the top
in international competition. Top level sport is becoming more and more intense
and competitive, so we have to give our sports people every support they need
to beat the world. This support differs from sport to sport and athlete to athlete,
but all need top level coaching, technological and medical back-up, and some form
of financial support.
have a contract with the New Zealand Sports Foundation to provide this support.
Almost 30% of the Hillary Commission's funds go to the Foundation so they can
help the champions of today and tomorrow. The Foundation works with the New Zealand
Olympic Committee to get the best results from our athletes.
New Zealanders beat the world it gives a strong sense of national pride, and it
inspires other sports people to aim for the top - it is an important part of supporting
sport and making New Zealand a great sporting nation.
