Jarrod Gilbert

Jarrod-Gilbert-1.JPGTwenty-three year-old Jarrod Gilbert is a true sports fanatic! As well as snowboarding and swimming with Special Olympics Te Awamutu, Jarrod cycles, plays hockey, enjoys wakeboarding and waterskiing, and has competed in three triathlons!

A fierce competitor, Jarrod was one of the stars of last year’s National Winter Games at Cardrona, taking home two gold medals and a silver medal.

“Snowboarding is really fun - I enjoy being out there for myself. And being selected for the World Winter Games is exciting,” Jarrod says.

When Jarrod’s not playing sport, he’s watching it. A keen Waikato Chiefs fan, Jarrod enjoys watching cycling and other sports on television. His part-time job is sport-related, working as a caretaker at the Avantidrome in Cambridge, and he even cycles to and from work!

As well as keeping fit through his sport, Jarrod’s training for the World Winter Games will involve snowboarding with the other Upper North Island athletes at Snowplanet in Auckland, and going to the mountain when he can.

“I’m really looking forward to competing overseas against people from other countries and representing New Zealand,” Jarrod says.
