World champion Eric Murray was snapped back into reality this week when his Olympic gold medal was discarded in a toy box next to a Mr Potato Head toy.

One half of the Kiwi pair, Murray tweeted the moment his son discarded the medal as he rummaged through a toy box.


Murray is one of many Kiwi athletes finding his feet again at home after returning from Rio where New Zealand enjoyed a record medal haul.

Black Sticks midfielder Anita Punt has been spending time feeding the ducks.
