The countries top news presenters and commentators including Tony Veitch,
Hamish McKay, Michelle Pickles, Curt Jones, Brendan Telfer, Scotty Stevenson,
and Ian Jones took up the challenge to ‘Put their bodies where
their mouths are’ completing 5 events in front of a lunch time crowd in Auckland.

spectators an entertaining example only to be commended for their outstanding commitment to task.
