New Zealand often leads the world in sport but lags near the back of the pack in writing about it. Or is the lag only in recognition? Our culture sees travel, romance, war, and children's writing as capable of literary excellence and worthy of academic study, but sports writing stays stuck in the back pages. Roger Robinson (When Running Made History), Suzanne McFadden (Striking Gold), and Keith Quinn (A Lucky Man) argue that New Zealanders can write as well about sport as they can practise it.
