As you have shown Kiwis certainly love sports, but there are aswell a lot of problems concerning obesity as I have read in several blogposts. So either the biggest proportion of New Zealands society enjoyes rather watching sports games than being sporty or they eat too much ‘crap’ after doing sports. And what’s about hiking, do you think it is aswell a kind of a national sport or more a thing for backpackers? Sadly as far as I know all the adventorous sports are really expensive. So when I go to New Zealand I’ll never be able to go skiing unless I take my skiers on board.
