On the night of the 3rd of February on TV 1 we had the annual New Zealand Sports Awards evening.
Well I was really interested in the 'Team of the Year' award. I thought that the Kiwis would get it, they were nominated alongside the double skull champions - Ever-Swindell twins, the All Blacks?? and the cycling team.
Shockingly - Ever-Swindell twins won. Even though they are a great team of two, I think that the New Zealand Kiwi Team deserved the award. I think they should have won it because they have made history. As for the twins, they have made history too ... it was expected. As for the Kiwis it is their FIRST time ever - which is pretty special and stands out.
With the Ever-Swindell twins people all around the world expected them to win gold. But the Kiwis surprising win was not expected by many people so makes it so much more bigger and greater!!
I am not doing this just because I am a league fan but because I love sport and think that this time the Kiwis earned this award. Twins you are fantastic - but this time the Kiwis are number one.
To the Kiwis: YOU ARE MY NEW ZEALAND SPORTS TEAM OF THE YEAR!!
