Hillary and Tenzing on New Zealand’s Commonwealth Games Logo

New Zealand Olympic Committee has decided that the country’s Commonwealth Games logo will be “29028 Hillary and Tenzing” in memory of the excellent team spirit shared by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay when they scaled Mt Everest on May 29, 1953.They were from completely different backgrounds .But as a team they overcame obstacles and conquered the world’s highest peak.The committee members believe that the Kiwi athletes will show the same team spirit shared by Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Norgay during the games.The ‘29028’ in the logo stands for the height of Mt Everest.

The Commonwealth Games is scheduled to be held on October this year at the Indian capital of New Delhi.
