Students respond to Olympians missing out on medals

Students respond to Olympians missing out on medals

A few weeks ago, we brought you a story about the raw deal handed to two New Zealand Olympians.

Neil McLeod and Les Wilson were part of the 1976 New Zealand hockey team at the Olympics and their team won gold -- but not them.

They did not receive medals because they were an active part of the team but did not play on the field at the game themselves.

It has been upsetting for the athletes, their families and now students from Myross Bush School in Invercargill too.

They're angry, frustrated and decided to speak out to Story about what they think is injustice.

Watch the video for the full Story report.
