Tim Hoy

Tim Hoy was born in New Zealand in 1974. He was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic at the age of two. Throughout his years of living with the disease, he has seen many changes around the management of Type 1 diabetes and has had many opportunities to meet people living with the disease.

Always wanting to test himself, he represented the province of Waikato in field hockey in high school. He then attended Otago University on New Zealand’s South Island, where, after taking up rowing for the first time, he went on to win a gold medal in the 1996 university men’s novice eights. He graduated with an honors degree in physical education with a major in biomechanics in 1997.

Wanting to see the world, he became a ski instructor in 1997, traveling to Canada on a student work abroad program at Mt. Norquay, near Banff, Alberta. He relocated to Australia to become an associate producer at Fox Sports before moving permanently to Canada in 2009, where he now works and lives with his wife and two children.
