Disappointment at Govt dismissal of seperate MIQ facility for athletes

Disappointment that the Government have automatically dismissed a separate MIQ facility for our athletes.  

We already know the plight of our athletes overseas; the Warriors can't get home, Ryan Fox, Hayden Wilde, Michael Venus, they all can't get a spot in MIQ and face months away.  

Others have visas expiring and will be kicked out of the country regardless if they have a spot to come home to or not.  

But what about those athletes who are currently here, can't compete, can't continue on their career or job, but are too worried to leave because they know of the struggle to come back? 

Kiwi pro surfer Paige Hareb is in that camp and joined Mike Hosking.
