Tom Walsh is a shot-put star and one of New Zealand’s most successful field athletes, having won bronze at Rio in 2016, gold at the 2017 World Championship, and gold at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. 

He’s the Oceania record holder with a personal best throw of 22.90 meters, and is gearing up for this year’s Tokyo Olympic Games.
