We would like to congratulate our Forsyth Barr colleague Hamish Bond who today completed a remarkable achievement. By winning gold in Tokyo as part of the men’s rowing eight, Hamish becomes the first New Zealander to win a gold medal in three consecutive Olympics. It’s a remarkable achievement, and we are enormously proud to have one of New Zealand’s greatest Olympians as part of the Forsyth Barr team. (When he’s not winning gold medals, Hamish is a Financial Adviser in our Cambridge office.)
Hamish joined Forsyth Barr in 2012 after winning a gold medal at the London Olympic Games, working part-time while continuing to compete on the global stage. Over the last nine years he has completed his studies and qualified as a Financial Adviser, while also winning a gold medal at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016 and a bronze medal at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in the cycling time trial. His ability to balance both his sporting and professional pursuits, culminating in this third consecutive gold medal win, is hugely impressive.
Congratulations to Hamish and his teammates in the NZ rowing squad for their amazing achievements.
