Text:18 countries from the Asia-Pacific region will participate in 2009's World Outgames, to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 25 July - 2 August. There's not long to go now! We caught up with hockey player Bren JD back in May, but since then we've found heaps more Kiwis who'll fly the New Zealand flag in Copenhagen next week. Copenhagen's Outgames Project Manager Ole Udsholt has revealed to that several New Zealanders are signed up to compete in the Games. "So it could very likely be that some of them will be bringing medals back with them from Copenhagen all the way down under to New Zealand. "They will be fighting for medals in Bridge, Swimming, Ball Room Dancing, Field Hockey, Tennis and ½ Marathon. Some will as well take part in the World Outgames International Conference on LGBT Human Rights," he says. KIWI SPEAKERS Kiwi pride: Georgina Beyer All the very best of luck to our Kiwi medal hopefuls! We'll keep you posted on their progress. Matt Akersten - 15th July 2009
