Fornicator - Out but not down

I caught up with Chris Forne today on google chat, he was holed up somewhere in Cali with a dubious internet connection that kept cutting out.

As Tane described in his last report Chris's effort in the relay left him with some shrapnel in his leg which saw him enjoying the delights of Cali's medical system rather than the closing ceremony of the World Games. Chris has now pulled out of the Eco-Motion Adventure Race in Brazil where he was due to compete with his World Champion Seagate team and will shortly be on a plane home.

Other than that though he was in good spirits and fired up to "put those juniors back in their place" at the upcoming regional championships, and to getting NZ back up the World rankings so we get more WOC spots...the mans enthusiasm remains unbrindled.
