Olympic Games Special

Friday 8 August, 8.30pm

In the countdown to the Beijing Olympics, viewers can see a very different clash of the codes on the Wheel Of Fortune: Olympic Games Special.

Swimming legend and NZ Olympics Ambassador Danyon Loader; former equestrian competitor and 1992 Barcelona Silver medallist Vicky Latta; and sporting personality Jane Kiely will compete against each other, playing for their favourite charities.
Hosts Jason Gunn and Sonia Gray will be challenging the contestants’ knowledge with sports related puzzles, and as always, TXT2Win will see home viewers winning great prizes from Noel Leeming.

A self-proclaimed ‘sports nut’, Gunn says he is very excited about this year’s Olympic games: “I have a feeling we are going to be hearing a lot of the New Zealand national anthem in the coming weeks. I’m really looking forward to TVNZ’s coverage – there will be more Olympics than ever before between the different channels, and between the options, I’ll be able to watch what I want to see, when I want to see it.”

Amongst Gunn’s favourite things to see is the synchronised swimming: ‘I can’t help but watch it. We’ve all given it a go, got in the water and tried to keep a float without one leg, let alone two. It’s amazing.”

Wheel Of Fortune plays Monday to Friday at 5.30pm.
