The 24-year-old NZ Olympian died earlier this week.

“I cannot fathom the pain your family and closest friends must be feeling right now, but I hope they are comforted by the fact that you are loved by so many and have touched so many hearts.”
Murray has announced another commemorative event planned for Cambridge on August 27 to allow Podmore’s friends – many of whom are Olympians currently in MIQ after competing in Tokyo – to attend.
More details for the Cambridge event will follow over the coming days, including a dress code that requires the wearing of bright colours.
Podmore’s family have also organised a memorial bike ride, which will take place in Christchurch on Saturday at 10am.
Participants are asked to meet at Princess Margaret Hospital, before riding to Sumner via Cashmere and Heathcote Valley. The event will end with a gathering at the Scarborough Park playground.
“Anyone who knew Liv, maybe met her once or twice, or even watched her journey and successes online and through social media, knows just how much Liv loved to ride her bike,” Podmore’s family wrote in a Facebook post. “She absolutely adored being on two wheels.
“This will be an opportunity for us all to take a moment and reflect on [Podmore’s] infectious energy and smile, her care and love for any person she met, and dedication to anything she pursued.”
Both Sport New Zealand – whose chief executive, Raelene Castle, attended Friday’s funeral – and Cycling New Zealand are providing support to Podmore’s teammates.
