Walking the Talk at EIT

August 24, 2011

On the road again – triathlete Fred Koenders will be in the company of some of the best competing for the final leg of the world championship series.

A talent for multi-tasking is taking Hawke’s Bay athlete Fred Koenders all the way to Beijing.

He’ll be representing New Zealand in the World Triathlon Champs in September.

Fred has a high profile in Hawke’s Bay, not only as a triathlete but also as EIT’s Dean of Humanities, Arts and Trades, president of the Hawke’s Bay Multisports Club and chairman of Sport Hawkes’ Bay. 

He’s a great example of someone walking the talk. 

At EIT we encourage our students to overcome personal challenges, and Fred has certainly had to do that. 

After damaging his Achilles tendon running, he had reconstructive surgery 3 ½ years ago and puts his full recovery down to carefully following his rehab programme and the advice of his physiotherapist.

All the best Fred – we’ll be cheering for you from Hawke’s Bay.
