New Zealand Herald on Kiwis at Gay Games VIII

From the New Zealand Herald:

New Zealand athletes have blitzed the podiums at an international sporting competition with a bit of a difference.

They have won at least 36 medals at Gay Games Cologne in Germany, where 10,000 gay athletes from more than 70 countries are competing.

Team Auckland Masters Swimming have made a massive splash, hauling in 19 medals from the pool in Germany.

The gay gamers have also picked up 12 track and field medals and five cycling medals.

Wellington 57-year-old Don Barclay is surely the Kiwi story of the games, coming back from breaking his wrist in October to win gold medals in his age group in both discus and shot put by massive margins.
