In an earlier sister-ceremony, members of Emirates Team New Zealand were presented with their Olympic pins, except for skipper Dean Barker, who was presented with his Pin on Tuesday, and also received a Pin on behalf of his wife, Mandy an Olympic Hockey representative.
Master of Ceremonies was Ralph Roberts, a Double Olympic rep in Finn and FD, former Olympic Yachting Manager, Chef de Mission, and Olympic jury member. Also speaking were the next Chef de Mission and Olympic Gold medalist Rob Waddell and NZ Olympic Committee President, also an Olympic Gold Medalist (Rowing).
