The national Under-19 women's cycling individual pursuit record once rested with the great Sarah Ulmer.
Now it is held by 16-year-old Madeleine Park of St Kentigern College. She set the mark in March at the national track champs in Cambridge, where she recorded a time of 2.26.395 for the 2000m event.
"I definitely didn't go into it thinking I'd come away with the record. You never go into an event that way. I gave it everything I had and when I finished I was just so happy and surprised," says Park.
That record was set in the omnium, which, for the uninitiated, is sort of like the decathlon event of cycling. Park won a bronze for her overall performance in the omnium, and gold in the individual pursuit at the event. She had already won selection for the New Zealand team heading to next month's junior world championships in Kazakhstan. Two of her teammates have been profiled in College Sport - Holly White of St Cuthbert's and Bryony Botha of Rangitoto.
"You don't want to build yourself up for too long, but the excitement is kicking in now," she said of the time since February when she got the nod. "It's a lot of preparation. It's my first time going to a big event like a junior worlds. It's a lot of hours training, gym work, nutrition and time," said the Year 12 student.
Park is a Pathway to Podium athlete, so she is on the radar for Gold Coast 2018 or Tokyo 2020. Her personal coach is professional rider Ryan Wills.
On the immediate horizon is this weekend's North Island secondary schools road championships in Cambridge.
That will be her last competitive hitout before the junior worlds. Park enjoys road cycling too, so that will not be a problem for her.
"I love cycling in general. Track and road, they are so different, adrenaline for track, endurance for road," she said.
Then it will be soaking up the Tour de France on the box, training hard, and gearing up for an intensive camp in Cambridge towards the end of this month.
Park will be hoping to ride her specialty, the 2000 individual pursuit, as well as the team pursuit.
"We've got a really good team. We mesh well together," she said.
She will be eyeing up 2016 selection as well in her last year at school. Some of the team competed recently at the Anzac Cup across the Ditch, and though they came second to the Australians, the experience may be invaluable in Kazakhstan.
Park rides for the strong St Kentigern premier girls' cycling team, and they are at the top of the standings after two rounds of the Auckland schools team time trial series. She will have to miss a couple of those races in August while abroad. She will also have to catch up on study in between race days.
College Sport now breaks for the school holidays and resumes on July 29.
ASB Young Sportsperson of the Year - winners 1991-2014
Each week until the annual ASB YSPOTY awards dinner in November, we will profile past winners as we count down to the 25th annual event which honours the top young college sportspeople in the region.
Scott Talbot-Cameron (Rosmini) 1998-99 Scott Talbot-Cameron is the sole two-time male winner of the overall ASB supreme award.
The 33-year-old has nothing but great memories of 1998-99 at Rosmini College.
"That school and period was great for me ... academically, personally and athletically. I felt we had good guidance from the college but just the right amount - it was never overbearing and there was little pressure to succeed - the only values instilled in us were to do our best and represent our family to the best of our ability," he says.
A gun in the pool at Rosmini, his ASB supreme award was clinched by qualifying for the 2000 Sydney Olympics with a seventh placing at the 1999 Pan Pacific Games.
"My memories of the awards night were rushing from training to get my suit and tie on and be at the dinner in time for the presentation and speeches. It was always a good night and a chance to spend time with both the principal [Tom Gerrard] and other athletes from other schools, which was always great. I remember meeting [basketballer] Kirk Penney one year and in 2004 we were on the same Olympic team."
Talbot-Cameron represented New Zealand at two Olympics, in 2000 and 2004, and held the New Zealand 100m backstroke record.
The Sydney Olympics topped the lot as he was born in Australia, so it was like a home meet.
"Fulfilling a lifelong dream was magical," he says.
Talbot-Cameron, whose parents were both fine swimmers and coaches in their own right, went on to take up coaching fulltime when he hung up the togs in 2006 after the Melbourne Commonwealth Games.
"I felt I had done what I could in the sport as an athlete and always knew I could coach at the levels higher than I could perform."
Married and now working in Sydney as a swim coach for Sydney University, life seems to be treating Talbot-Cameron well.
"I love coaching and being in Sydney.
"I have a good team which is currently in a building phase, but this year I have three athletes on the Australia A team and we are looking forward to next year and then of course beyond to Tokyo [2020 Olympics]."
Terenzo Bozzone (Rangitoto) 2002Terenzo Bozzone was very busy in 2002, and extraordinarily successful in his sporting endeavours at Rangitoto College.
He won the triathlon and duathlon junior world and national schools titles, not to mention national schools wins in the cross-country and 3000m, plus a time trial victory on the bike.
Not for nothing did then-Rangitoto director of sport Graham Lowe refer to Bozzone as "a freak".
There must have been something in the Rangitoto water around that time; two years later swimmer Corney Swanepoel won the supreme award, and in 2006 Rebecca Spence, another triathlete from the country's largest school, took the honours.
"There's been a lot of top calibre athletes who have come through Rangitoto," says Bozzone, who still lives on the North Shore, when he is not competing abroad in his beloved triathlon.
"That 2002 was a big year for me. I was head boy and I had to do a bit of cramming for my exams at the end of the year."
He still got an A Bursary, though not enough to get him into medical school, as he had hoped.
"In hindsight, it meant I could keep going in my triathlon career."
And keep going he did. He is still in the midst of a stellar career, which is highlighted by his 2008 world championship Ironman victory, set in a course record.
In 2006 he won the Wildflower event in a course record which still stands.
This year he has won the Challenge Dubai half-Ironman. Bozzone would love to one day knock off the New Zealand Ironman, though Cameron Brown has ruled that event.
Next on the horizon for Bozzone is next month's Ironman 70.3 world championships in Australia, but the 30-year-old is otherwise sticking close to home this winter as his wife is about to give birth to their first child.
On the 2002 sporting year and the ASB Awards of that year, Bozzone has only fond memories: "It was awesome to be a part of that.
"It makes us athletes feel important and gives us a taste of a more sophisticated environment than just school stuff.
"Rangitoto was a great school. I'm sure it still is. They were very supportive of sportspeople across the board. [The late] Allan Peachey was principal when I was there and he was an amazing leader."
