Patrick gets a kick
out of meeting coach
By LOUISE BERWICK
A Southland boy is another step
closer to reaching his Olympic
dream after impressing New
Zealand's taekwondo Olympic
Taekwondo black belt, Patrick
Hanson-Friend, 12, gave up a
week of his summer holidays to
train in Auckland with three-
time New Zealand Olympic
taekwondo head coach Jin Keun
Oh, a chance that could help
him get to the Olympics.
Last week he received a letter
from Master Oh inviting him
back to Auckland to continue to
train for week-long stints.
The 12-year-old said it was an
honour to meet and train under
the acclaimed coach, who was
impressed with Patrick's ability.
While the James Hargest pupil
will have to juggle his tae-
kwondo with his school work,
his parents are busy thinking of
ways to fundraise to get their
son to Auckland four times a
year for the training sessions
with Master Oh.
Patrick is the best in his age
group in the country, and picked
up a silver medal at the
Australian Open Taekwondo
Championships last year, but it
is hard for him to find
competitors in Invercargill at
the same skill level and in the
same weight category as him.
Training in Auckland gave him
the chance to compete against
people on a level playing field.
''It was just amazing up there,''
He said the training was tough
and being away from his family
was also hard, but it was worth
''It was inspiring for me, he
[Master Oh] was real cool.''
While the Olympics are a few
years away for the young
athlete, his sights are set on the
event and the training camp has
motivated him even more, he

You'll be able to step back in time
when the Bluff Maritime Museum
opens its doors for free on Saturday.
The Foreshore Rd museum cele-
brated its 20th birthday in November
and the open day will be the final
part of the celebrations.
Bluff Maritime Museum chairperson
Jan Mitchell said it was a chance for
the museum and its trustees to say
''thank you'' to the community for
their ongoing support.
''Our museum relies on the public
goodwill and we've had so many
donations of things, in all sorts of
She said the community had backed
the attraction during the past two
decades and holding an open day
was a way to ensure it was accessible
''I think we will be inundated with
quite a few people,'' Mrs Mitchell
She hoped people from throughout
Southland would ''make a day of it''
by visiting the other attractions in
Bluff and enjoying what the museum
had to offer.
''We're a child-friendly museum. It's
going to be an absolutely fantastic
day for families to have quality time
