At Hayes Knight we are committed to investing in our local communities through holding various community positions and sponsorships. We are proud to be associated with supporting excellence and emerging talent.
Jacko Gill Sponsorship
Hayes Knight has entered into a four-year partnership with North
Shore track & field Olympian, Jacko
Gill, heralded as the most talented junior shot putter
ever. Jacko holds multiple age group world records. He
is the youngest ever male world junior champion wining the World
Junior (U20) title in 2010 aged just 15. Jacko went on to defend
that title in 2012, aged 17, and was the youngest competitor in the
top eight at the 2015 World Championships by nearly three years,
aged just 20. Jacko then began his Olympic journey at just 21
with a ninth place at the Rio Olympic Games. By providing funding
and accounting support to Jacko, we hope to go a small way to
making Jacko's journey to future success that much easier.
Jacko's sponsorship is an extension to the support we provide to High Performance Sport New Zealand
athlete's as a partner in the Athlete Friendly
