New Zealand has a rich history of producing greats in athletics. We have witnessed the best performers from various sports over the years winning hearts of billions with their brilliant skills. Athletics has always been highly competitive and challenging; being an athlete is one of the toughest jobs one could choose for her/himself. They are required to continuously work very hard on vastly diversified set of attributes. Countries such as China and USA who have numerous populations and resources are more likely to produce great athletes. However, despite having such low population, New Zealand has produced individuals that have stunned the world with their outrageous performances.
