Violet Walrond

For reading, some of LS2 had to read a book about Violet Walrond. Violet was still quite young when she went to the 1920 olympics (The olympics that were held after world war 1). She is very important to New Zealand's history because she was one of four people who went to the olympics the first time New Zealand was it's own olympic nation. The other members of her team were a sprinter, a rower and a hurdler.
