Through the 2008 Games in Beijing, no New Zealander has won a gold medal in javelin.
Valerie Vili did that
The first New Zealander to win an Olympic medal was Harry Kerr who won a Bronze in the 3500m walk in London in 1908. However this was part of a combined New Zealand and Australia team. The first Gold medal was won by swimmer Malcolm Champion in the 4x200m relay in 1912; this was also as part of a combined Australasian team. New Zealand sent its own team for the first time to Antwerp in 1920 and Darcy Hadfield won a Bronze medal in the Single Sculls. New Zealand's first Gold Medal for a New Zealand team was won in Amsterdam in 1928 by welterweight boxer, Ted Morgan.
OK....... come on do u not think she was at the Olympics and won a gold medal and came first...... think hello
That was Annelise Coberger who won silver in women's slalom skiing at the 1992 Winter Games in Albertville.
A New Zealander is a person from the country of New Zealand.
New Zealand's first individual gold medal was won in 1928. Boxer Ted Morgan won gold in the welterweight class at the Amsterdam Olympics. Morgan took first prize as a virtual unknown and fought under the handicap of a dislocated little finger.
That was a silver medal won by Annalise Coberger in alpine slalom skiing at the 1992 Winter Games in Albertville.
Mahé Drysdale won the Gold Medal for Men's single sculls
The first New Zealander to climb and reach the summit of Mount Everest was Edmund Hillary. He reached the top on the 29th May 1953.
Yes, Temuera Morrison is a New Zealander.

Grahame Thorne is the prominent New Zealander with name suppression.
Ted Morgan was New Zealand's first individual gold medal winner, winning the welterweight class in boxing at the 1928 Amsterdam games. He was not, however, the first New Zealander to win a gold medal. That honour went to swimmer Malcolm Champion, winning gold as part of the Australasian 4 x 200 metre relay team at the 1912 Stockholm games. The first New Zeland woman to win an Olympic gold medal was Yvette Williams, winning the long jump at the 1952 Helsinki Games.
There are many interpretations as to who "discovered" DNA, but I have never heard that it was a New Zealander that "invented" it.
A person from New Zealand is called a New Zealander, a native of New Zealand is a Maori, a non-maori New Zealander may call themselves a Kiwi and a Maori calls a non-Maori New Zealander a Pakeha.
