Rebecca Wardell - NZ Heptathlon Olympian - Some Pictures

Here are several Olympics photos sent to me by New Zealand Champion Heptathlete, Rebecca Wardell. Rebecca finished a respectable 23rd with her 2nd second best score of 5989, an agonising 11 points shy of 6000. I have helped Rebecca in a very small way with her nutrition.

Interestingly, the Ukranian woman who got silver in the Olympic heptathlon has failed a drug test. So Rebecca will now be in 22nd spot.

Photo Two: Rebecca and the Olympic Rings

Rebecca is ranked in the top four in the Commonwealth and currently ranked 7th on the IAAF World Combined Events Challenge.

Isn't it wonderful to see these joyous photos of an athlete having an absolutely delightful ball at the Olympics despite not winning!
