Sudheer Ramjathan in action at the 2007 Worldskills Competition


 

The 2007 ‘Tool Blacks’ team has achieved the best results ever by a New Zealand team at the international WorldSkills Competition. At the Closing Ceremony, New Zealand was awarded 1 Silver medal, 2 Bronze medals and 5 Medallions of Excellence.

Sudheer Ramjathan was awarded the ‘Best of Nation’ award for his fantastic performance that secured him the Silver medal – equaling New Zealand’s highest ever individual performance.

Sudheer Ramjathan, sponsored by MITO and AMI Insurance, commented before the competition that it “will be tough but I feel confident in my abilities and will give it my best shot.”

Sudheer trained very hard on all aspects of his trade and when the pressure came on he remained focussed and really showed what he can do.

Sudheer works at Colin Waite Ltd in Auckland and has been trained by WorldSkills NZ National Skills Expert and 2007 NZ WorldSkills judge (Autobody Repair) Greig Jordan, who is also based in Auckland and owns Jordan Panelbeaters Ltd.

Greig is an ex-WorldSkills competitor and was the first person to represent NZ in the Autobody Repair skill category in 1999 at the Montreal WorldSkills Competition.

The 2 other Automotive ‘Tool Blacks’ were Johnny Simpson (Auto Refinishing) and Carl Hendl-Anderson (Automotive Technology). Carl achieved a Medallion of Excellence and Johnny also performed well.
