Burty Molia, one of our Implementation Support Consultants, won two medals in recent Masters Games in Grade A badminton - a gold in the 40s team event, and a silver in the 35s mixed doubles event.
Having the 2017 Masters Games right on his doorstep was an opportunity too good to miss says Burty, as was the chance to play against former world champions.
He admits he was a bit of late starter to the sport of badminton, first picking up a racquet towards the end of his secondary schooling in Fiji. From there he joined the Fiji National Squad, and coached and played for the Fiji Islands in national and international events, including the South Pacific Games, Oceania Games, and the Commonwealth Games.
Moving to New Zealand 10 years ago, Burty continued playing and now captains the Auckland Masters Division 1 team.
He’s now aiming for the next Games in Japan, for another opportunity to win a recognised gold medal in a world event.
And Burty’s key takeaway from the Masters Games?
Age doesn’t matter!
