Mike Stanley has been re-elected president of the New Zealand Olympic Committee.

Stanley, who became president in 2009 after six years as a board member, was today unopposed at the committee's general assembly in Auckland.

The former rower, who was part of the men's eight that finished fourth at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, will retain the position for a further four-year term, through to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Simon Wickham was re-elected to the board and Trevor Taylor was voted on as a new member.

Votes were cast by representatives of national sports organisations at the meeting.

Taylor is the father of 2012 London Olympics bronze medal rower Peter Taylor.

Both men were recommended by NZOC board appointments panel representative Sir John Wells.

The committee's 2012 annual report was passed at the meeting, with financial reserves rising by $115,000.

Other business at the assembly included secretary-general Kereyn Smith confirming a change to the NZOC procedure on athlete registration at major events.

The change follows an infamous error that saw New Zealand's Olympic staff fail to properly register reigning women's shot put champion Valerie Adams for the London Games and had to rely on a last-minute amendment.

Will Shane Cameron beat Kali Meehan on Saturday?

For sure. Cameron will knock him out.

It will be close but I think Cameron on points.

Meehan will knock him out. This is his last fight.
