New Year's Honours - Professor Emeritus Gary Hermansson

From Summer Noelle, 10:07 am on 2 January 2015

Professor Emeritus Gary Hermansson had dedicated his life to success in sport, first as an athlete - as part of the Wellington team that beat both South Africa and the British Lions in the 1960s, and as a New Zealand Under 23 cricketer - then as a psychologist. He's been to every Olympics and Commonwealth Games since 1998, helping athletes reach their peak and he's busy planning for Rio in 2016. This week he was recognised as an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to the field of sport psychology.
