It was a night of glitz and glamour as New Zealand’s sporting greats – and those who admire them – walked the red carpet for this year’s Halberg Awards. With COVID putting a stop to many sporting events in the last year, it was a celebration of a decade of great sporting people. Olympic sprint canoeist Lisa Carrington took out Sportswoman of the Decade. The two-time gold medallist has dominated the Sportswoman of the Year category, winning it four years in a row from 2016. The 31-year-old was presented with the trophy by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, 40, who shared how thrilled she was to be part of recognising our sporting greats. “I always feel completely honoured to present at events like the Halberg Awards, and especially tonight, where I had the…

The ability to overcome adversity is something I greatly admire – and in this week’s issue, we share the stories of women who’ve done just that. In our cover story, we chat to former Silver Fern Adine Wilson, who’s had more than her fair share of ups and downs, including healing from a broken neck. On page 6, she speaks candidly about how difficult that time was and how her husband, rugby legend Jeff, still doesn’t like to talk about it. Adine’s truly inspiring as she describes how 2020 was a year of reflection in which she spent time reorganising her priorities. This has meant putting her career as a commercial lawyer on hold so she can spend more time with her children. She and Jeff are raising sporty boys, and…

career on hold adine’s family sacrifice

‘It’s a hard year to think about and Jeff certainly hates me talking about it’ Adine Wilson is just back from her youngest son Lincoln’s morning cricket match and is preparing for big brother Harper’s afternoon game. Saturdays mean a full day of cricket in the Wilsons’ Auckland household. “It’s just the usual juggle of trying to get everyone there and fed with all the right equipment,” says the former Silver Fern, whose husband Jeff Wilson is in Hamilton for the day, doing the commentary for a pre-season rugby match. It’s the juggle many parents know well, but the difference is not all parents are former national sporting reps. Adine is well known for her role as the captain of the Silver Ferns, leading them to their Commonwealth Games victory in 2006, and…

the wrap up...

SHARON FACES the music She was sucked into the storm surrounding Piers Morgan’s controversial comments about Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, now Sharon Osbourne is facing harsh accusations of her own. When the topic of Piers was brought up on her show, The Talk, Sharon voiced her support for her old friend, but became angry and defensive when some of her co-hosts felt that in supporting him, she was perpetuating racism. Production on the show was suspended as they investigated the disagreement, but what was originally a two-day break has been extended as new allegations against Sharon have come to light. Multiple sources have come out and accused Sharon of a litany of past racist comments towards former co-hosts. But the 68-year-old is not taking the allegations lying down. She has called the claims “all crap”…

pitt of despair brad’s kids to testify

‘He feels like he’s being more and more isolated from his children. He’s devastated’ Their bitter divorce has so far lasted twice as long as their fairytale marriage – and now it seems Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are headed for an explosive showdown. Ever since Angelina filed for divorce in 2016, days after Brad and their adopted teenage son Maddox got into a heated fight on a private plane, the pair have been at loggerheads over custody of their five youngest children. Now, with the courts soon to decide the matter once and for all, it seems Angelina has lobbed a grenade into the proceedings that has devasted the Fury actor. Insiders say Brad was “blindsided” on March 12 when his former paramour lodged court documents indicating she will once again accuse Brad…
