5 Minutes with Tori Peeters

This week’s star in the hot seat is New Zealand’s best female Javelin thrower, Tori Peeters. As a multi-talented individual, she also has a Bachelor of Physical Education in Exercise Science & Professional Studies and Diploma in Raynor Massage!

We are lucky enough to have athletes like Tori train at the Avantidrome on a daily basis. It makes it even better when we see the countless hours they put in pay off. This is defiantly the case for Tori who has had an incredible 2020 season. She’s currently placed 2nd in the 2020 season WORLD rankings! She won silver at the Melbourne Track Classic, Gold at the Canberra Track Classic and Gold at the Sydney Track Classic which is a Bronze Level Meet. Along the way she set multiple Personal Bests and New Zealand Records. Not to mention she also won a National Title at the NZ Track and Field Champs and now holds the meet record.

We sat down (or rather emailed) with Tori and asked her our five questions.
