NZ Luge at the Youth Olympic Games is the result of a team effort. While Matheson Hill is our representative at the Games, Andrew Scott, Josh Steele and Tyler Cathro-Carson should all take some credit as they were members of the NZ Junior Team that trained and competed together in North America in January/February and November/December last year. It was this effort that provided the platform for Matheson, the only athlete in the required 2 year age band, to meet the qualification requirements. Additionally Guntis Rekis (coach), Jock Scott (January/February manager), Mark Hill (November/December manager) and the boy’s families, friends, sponsors and funders, especially those from the Maniototo Community, who helped raise a significant funding should also take significant credit.
