New Zealand at the 2008 Summer Olympics

New Zealand took part in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. The country sent 182 competitors, making this its largest ever delegation to the Olympic Games.[1] It was also one of the most successful, equalling New Zealand's combined medal tally from the previous two Summer games.[2] On 16 August – dubbed "Super Saturday" by journalists – New Zealand had its greatest single day at any Olympics, winning 5 medals: two gold, one silver and two bronze.[3] New Zealand also gained its first Olympic track medal since 1976 when Nick Willis won the silver medal in the men's 1500 metres, becoming the sixth New Zealander to win an Olympic medal in that event.[4] The success at the Olympics has boosted Athletics participation since then.[5]
