14 Nov 2021 – Dunedin's Mhairi-Bronté Duncan and Auckland's Brett Sargon head to Europe next week, intent on winning one of the two remaining places in the Mixed Doubles event at next year's Beijing Winter Olympics.
They are not daunted by the scale of the task, and are confident in their game despite some less than ideal preparation.
The pair have been unable to train together since Auckland went into Covid lockdown in mid-August, and the only tournament they were due to play in before their departure – the NZ Mixed Doubles Championship – has been postponed twice.
