Mark Weeks #73

Mark Weeks, New Zealand Paralympian

Para alpine skier Mark represented New Zealand at the Albertville 1992 Paralympic Winter Games in Giant Slalom, Slalom, Downhill and Super G. Mark stopped in Africa to meet up with friends after the Paralympic Games and stayed there 4 years doing supply runs to luxury lodges into the Okavango Delta in Botswana – on his own, in a 4WD truck. Mark then spent 10 years as an overland safari driver, operating tours from Kenya to South Africa.

Married in 2001 – 2 amazing daughters and an amazing wife, Mark and his family came back to NZ in 2013 for kids high schooling. Since then Mark has been teaching his kids to ski, worked as a driving truck instructor and now works as a workshop manager for a fleet of trucks/diggers. 

Mark officially received his ‘numbered’ Paralympic pin as part of The Celebration Project in Tauranga in July 2019.
