Something most people don't know about you?

I used to play representative cricket, so I got the thrill of my life while flying from Christchurch to Dunedin discovering that the. Indian cricket team were on my flight. I chatted to Sachin Tendulkar in the airport and on the flight the team invited me to sit with them in a spare seat. I was flying to an athletics competition as a 12-year-old and it was the first time I flew without my parents. Needless to say my Dad was very excited that I met the world's best batsman.
