Aidan Nelson (Year 13) and Frazer Tam (Year 11) have had the chance of a lifetime – to represent New Zealand on the world stage in inline hockey.

The two boys were part of the New Zealand junior inline men’s hockey team who competed in the recent World Roller Games held in Barcelona, placing 15th overall.

It was an incredible experience for both.

“We played five games against top-rated countries from all over the world. It was an opportunity like no other, playing the sport I love in Barcelona,” says Frazer.

"It showed us that we can compete with the best teams in the world while also showing us what we need to improve on. The games were an amazing experience, one that I will learn from and use to increase my skill and knowledge of the game," says Aidan.
