Kiwi chef de mission Dave Currie confirms exit from Commonwealth role

New Zealands Commonwealth Games team boss Dave Currie has confirmed that the Delhi Commonwealth Games would be his last as chef de mission.


New Delhi, Oct 1: New Zealand's Commonwealth Games team boss Dave Currie has confirmed that the Delhi Commonwealth Games would be his last as chef de mission.

Currie would come back to manage the Kiwi team for 2012 London Olympics, but after that he would look at making a change.

"I've had an extraordinary run. As much as I love it, it will be time for something else. It's been on my mind for a while. But, when I get there, I might still pull a David Lange and say I want to keep the job," The New Zealand Herald quoted Currie, as saying.

"People ask me how I got here... and I have no idea. I can join the dots backwards. However, I'm not prepared to go and have cups of coffee forever yet. I'm committed to London, but not ready to retire to Raglan [his home town]," he added.

Currie further said that the Delhi Commonwealth Games experience, where he has been immersed in ongoing security, hygiene and safety concerns, have tested his passion for the job.

"People tell me I do the job moderately well, but it's never easy. It's times like this when you are tested that enjoy is the wrong word, but it's probably why you do it because it is hard. One of Tenzing Norgay's quotes is "be great and make others great" so the driver for me is to be the best we can be," he added.

Currie is contracted with New Zealand Cricket until early 2012 before he completes his role as a chef de mission in London.

He will return to his other job as Black Caps manager two weeks after the Commonwealth Games.

The New Zealand cricket team will be in India for a six-week tour.
