Anthony Field #157

Anthony Field, New Zealand Paralympian

Anthony lost his right arm at the age of 8 after a car crashed into him while he was playing cricket near the road. Anthony is a Para alpine skier who made his Paralympic debut at the Torino 2006 Paralympic Winter Games. Along with Paralympian #158 Adam Hall, they formed the NZ Paralympic Team in Italy. Anthony had the honour of being the NZ flag bearer at the Opening Ceremony. He competed in the Downhill, the Giant Slalom, the Super-G and the Slalom in the standing class. 

Anthony has also been a ski instructor at Coronet Peak and is still very involved in Para alpine skiing camps. He is a skiing role model and provides inspiration for new Para athletes showing that there is a path available to reach World Para alpine skiing competition level given the correct training, effort and attitude.

Anthony lives in Wanaka and works as as a ski instructor at Cardrona and a Land Surveyor.

Anthony officially received his ‘numbered’ Paralympic pin as part of The Celebration Project in Queenstown in September 2020.
