The Rio Olympics are in full swing and New Zealand is on the medals board in several sports - yay us! We’ve got nothing on this lassie though, who impressively can almost make an entire dress out of her medal haul!! Possibly only US Swimmer Michael Phelps will be able to attempt this feat in the near future – with 25 Olympic medals over several Olympic Games, he may be able to pull off a pair of medal swimmers….
