Give It Your Best Shot and Win! at Queens Wharf Thursday 23 June 

Sure, our throwers make it look easy, but did you know a shot put weighs up to 7.2kg?
With the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games kicking off at the end of July, the New Zealand Team want to give New Zealanders a ‘shot’ at shot put and be in to win some epic prizes.

At our pop-up shot put circles, you’ll get a demonstration of how it’s done before having a go yourself. You’ll also get the chance to see some of our athletes up close and personal, and chat to locally regarded throws coaches and athletes

We’re after the best shot in each city – there’s four categories for both adults and kids so there’s something for everyone – throw it the furthest and you’ll be in to win!
We’ll be touring four New Zealand cities on the following dates:

  • Wellington’s Queens Wharf – Thursday 23 June – 10.00am – 2.00pm

 Come along and Give it your Best Shot while supporting our New Zealand Team.

Get a chance to talk to Shaka Sola and see how he inspires athletes at his Sola Power Throwing Academy and compare yourself with some of Wellingtons leading young throwers.

This is made possible with the support of Athletics New Zealand and our Team partners Sport New Zealand and High Performance Sport New Zealand. Thanks also to Jennian Homes.
