Bronze dedicated to old friend

The New Zealand Olympic men's pursuit cycling team has dedicated its bronze medal to a special friend.
For years, Bike New Zealand has based its track riders and staff at Invercargill's Admiral Court Motel, run by husband and wife team Mark and Shirley Keen.
But tragically, Mr Keen died suddenly in May this year - a death that has had a profound effect on the tight-knit unit.
Today rider Sam Bewley posted a message on Twitter dedicating his medal to his past friend.
Ms Keen says it's an amazing gesture.
“He did know them more personally, especially Mark, he would just go and chat to the guys and spend time with them,” she says.
Ms Keen says her husband would have been proud to hear of the team's accomplishment.
