Barbara Kendall
Inducted in 2015
Barbara Kendall began international competition when she was still a teenager and for the next 20 or so years, there was no one to compare.
Sporting Category:
  • Yachting
She won a full set of Olympic medals – gold in 1992, silver in 1996 and bronze in 2000 – but that told only some of the tale of Barbara Kendall, superior windsurfer and extraordinary athlete.

She won eleven world championship medals, including four world titles, and collected just about every honour a grateful sport and country could bestow.

Instead of relaxing after twenty years of competitive success, Barbara Kendall set out on an administrative career that includes her being a member of the International Olympic Committee in New Zealand.

Brother Bruce began it all with an Olympic gold medal in 1988; Barbara maintained the momentum.
