We were actively supported during the HMB World Championship Battle of the Nations -2014. Our team had many fans back home in New Zealand. They sent us messages of support through Facebook. Some of them were our friends, but many of our “virtual” support group we have never met. Basically it was our compatriots who are rooting for us. It was a really big help, so that keep our team fighting. Also we knew that our support group were staying up at night to watch our fights. So we had to fight well to make their sacrifice worth it:).
And after last years result we had to prove that National Team of New Zealand are competitive at this sport. And we did it!
