Black Fins New Zealand team for German Cup.

Growing up I always loved sports and the sense of community they created. I found myself gravitating to the water over my young sporting life. And that’s where I found my passion of Swimming and Surf Lifesaving. I have recently been selected into the German Cup NZ Black Fins team to go and compete in Germany. This has been a goal of mine since World Championships last year. Competing in surf life saving is very different and unique but it also means that in some way I am giving back to the community on the beaches. I have recently just broken a Youth world record in the 100m Tow with manikin. It has always been my dream to make the Open Black Fins and to represent New Zealand on the International stage. I feel incredibly appreciative to the Bobby-Stafford Bust Foundation in helping me chase my dreams.
