BMX star Sarah Walker elected to International Olympic Committee

Nō te rangi nei kōwhirihia ai te kaieke pahikara Māori a Sarah Walker o Te Whakatōhea ki te komiti whakahaere Ōrimipia o te ao.

I whiwhi mētara hiriwa a Walker i Ngā Taumāhekeheke Ōrimipia o Rānana i te tau rua mano tekau mā rua.

Heoi anō, kīhai i pērā rawa te kounga o āna whakatutukitanga i ēnei Ōrimipia kua horī nei.

Ā, tahi anō ia ka whakaingoatia hei mema i te komiti whakahaere nā runga anō i te tono a tōna perehītini, a Thomas Bach.

Nā te uepū Ōrimipia o Aotearoa a Walker i tono atu ki te kōmihana kaipara kē, mō te tūpono iere pai ai ngā reo a ngā kaipara o te kāinga ki tarawāhi rā anō.
