Moira de Villiers

Moira de Villiers does Judo. She has made it into the London Olympics. She will represent New Zealand in judo at the London Olympics. Moira de Villiers was named to compete in the under 70kg class. She had to battle with a dislocated ring finger in the crucial semi-final round of the Commonwealth Championships early this year.
In spite of the pain, de Villiers, who had been accepted to the elite Olympic Training Centre in Paris, pushed on and won the event.
"It was sore but the adrenaline kept me going," she said. "It was about mental ability and toughness and I wanted it so badly." She is rated 18th on the Olympic ranking table. Originally from South Africa, de Villiers has been living on Auckland's North Shore since 2003.
She says as a non-funded athlete it's been tough achieving her Olympic dream.
"I work, train, sleep," she said.
"I miss my family."
New Zealand has sent 14 judo athletes, including five women, to Olympic Games.

  1. Wow, great post Hannah!

    I did not know about Moria and it was interesting to find out about her through your post. I like how you added an audio podcast. It was very clear.

      I found her really interesting as well. One great place to do recording is at home or in a quite place. :)

  2. Wow Hanz.
    This is an awesome post.
    I can understand why you chose her because you do the same sport as her. I can see that you take a lot of PRIDE in your HW.
    Keep up the great work!
