Ian Ferguson

(1952 - )

Ian Ferguson
When Ian Ferguson first competed at an Olympic Games in 1976 and even again when he was one of the tiny team in Moscow in 1980, few would have seen him as one of New Zealand’s greatest sportsmen.

Yet that’s what he became – two gold medals in one day in the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in 1984, then another the next day.

Four years later, in Seoul, there was another gold medal, plus a silver. There were also world titles in 1985 and 1987 plus several world silver medals.

He is the only New Zealander to have competed in five Olympic Games and his four gold medals is also a record. But that wasn’t all. Ferguson also won gold and silver competing for New Zealand in surf lifesaving.
