Guests of honour will include rugby greats -- John Kirwan and David Campese, along with a variety of our local sporting legends.

Over the next two months we will have plenty of opportunities to reflect on local and nation sporting heroes. Cory Jane is proud of Upper Hutt and the city holds him in high esteem. He carries our hopes into the 2011 Rugby World Cup. He is already an achiever. He went to Heretaunga College. He spent a formative year playing for Hawkes Bay in 2004. From 2005 he became an important member of the Wellington Lions and Hurricanes in his full back and winger role. In 2006 he won a gold medal as a member oftheNZSe v e n st e a ma t the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. He debuted as an All Black in 2008 -- in Hong Kong against Australia.

World champ deserves to strike Olympic gold SPORTS TALK JOSEPH ROMANOS I'm really hoping Mahe Drysdale wins an Olympic rowing gold medal in London next year. No-one deserves it more. Although he was born in Australia, Drysdale is a New Zealander anyone can be proud of. After his win at Bled over the weekend, he now has five singles sculls world championship trophies on his mantel- piece. The 32-year-old is one of the world's greatest ever single scullers. It would be an injustice if he never won an Olympic gold medal. He would have one already, but for an unfortunate occurrence at Beijing in 2008. Drysdale, world champion in 2005, 2006 and 2007, was a raging favourite going into those games, but emerged with only a bronze medal. He accepted the honour of being the New Zealand team captain and flag- bearer in the opening ceremony, after the Evers-Swindell twins declined, preferring to focus strictly on their rowing. Drysdale was a popular choice. He had performance and personality going for him. However, during a long, steamy Beijing evening, the opening ceremony seemed interminable. By the time Drysdale got back to the Olympic village -- he did not return to rowing headquarters that evening because it was too far away and it was too late -- he had lost a lot of weight through constant sweating and, worse, had picked up a stomach virus. The single sculls competition began first thing the next morning and Drys- dale was far below his best. He tried all week to shake off his ill- ness, but even in the final was far from 100 per cent. He clawed his way to a bronze medal, then immediately after the final, was put into an ambulance. He had been carried by life raft after his race, vomiting. Drysdale was a late starter at rowing -- he initially favoured canoe polo, at which he represented New Zealand. He was inspired by Rob Waddell's heroics at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and began rowing while studying at Auckland University. After competing in the coxless four at the 2004 Athens Olympics, placing fifth, Drysdale turned to the single sculls with fantastic results. At 1.98m (6ft 6in), he gets incredible leverage in his stroking, and he has a beautiful powerful technique. I thought he would struggle after not winning the gold medal in Beijing, but he returned to claim the world title again in 2009. He was hampered by injury in 2010 and did well to win a silver medal. Now he has bounced back with another world title -- and in the year immediately before an Olympics, too, everyone's really trying. New Zealand has a proud tradition in single sculling, right back to the 19th century, when Billy Webb won the world professional title. Dick Arnst and Darcy Hadfield won that crown over the next couple of decades. More recently, Don Rowlands (in the 1950s), Murray Watkinson (in the 1960s and 1970s), Eric Verdonk (an Olympic bronze medallist in 1988), Waddell and current lightweight champion Duncan Grant have been tremendous single scullers. On the women's side, Stephanie Foster, Phillippa Baker (a lightweight world champion), Brenda Lawson and current star Emma Twigg have all been out- standing. If the rowing gods smile on him in London next year, Drysdale will end up with a better record than any of them.
