Ambassadors 2017

New Zealand Masters Games is proud to present the Games Ambassadors who are out there enlightening everyone about what they have to gain by being part of the Masters movement. 



Sean Johnson


We're excited to have Sean join us as Ambassador for the second New Zealand Masters Games.

Inducted into the Whanganui Sports Hall of Fame in 2013. Former world lawn bowls silver and bronze medal winner Sean Johnson has the distinction of having played in 99 tests for New Zealand.

Sean says "It is certainly a privilege to be a Games Ambassador for this World Class Event. If this is you first time experiencing the New Zealand masters Games please enjoy what this beautiful city has to offer and I’m sure for those returning competitors you will once again be looking forward to reuniting with the many competitors & friends you have made while competing at the New Zealand Masters Games. Having been a participant in previous years I am excited to once again be involved with this event.

I look forward to Sharing in the 2017 New Zealand Masters Games."



Catherine Cheatley


We are extremely fortunate to have Cath Cheatley as one of our 2017 Ambassadors – Cath is an Olympic and Commonwealth representative, NZ Road Cycling Champ, and proud to call Whanganui home!

As a youngster she grew up coming along to the Games supporting her folks, and is super excited to be back in 2017 cheering all of you on!

Cath says "Wow - where has the year gone! We are only 114 days until the 2017 New Zealand Masters Games kicks off in the mighty Whanganui. Now is the time to plan out all the events you can take part in. It could be challenging to fit everything in with such a huge range of choices. Remember the social events as well. Maybe pick the events with a later start after a night on the dance floor! I can’t wait to head down and watch everyone in action next year, relax in the Whanganui sunshine and eat my way around Games Village forecourt, and awesome cafes. See you soon!"



Grant Kereama


We can't wait for Ambassador Grant Kereama to be back in his home town of Whanganui with us for the 2017 New Zealand Masters Games.

Grant is excited to see Whanganui’s beautiful CBD humming as the War Memorial Centre transforms to be the new home of the Games Village.

Being a fan of leading a healthy active lifestyle, we hope to encourage Grant to sign up for a sport, or three!

Look out for Grant out and about during Games week and stay tuned for more Ambassador updates.
