Gold Medallist, 2012
Beef + Lamb New Zealand Iron Maiden
Lisa is a flatwater canoer who competed at her first Olympics in London 2012, which proved to be an inspiration to many, where she won gold in the Women’s K-1 200 metres, and also set a new Olympic record. The same event she won in 2011 at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships. The first New Zealand woman to achieve either of these feats.
Lisa also competes in the K2 500, and at the 2012 Oceania Championships Lisa won two gold medals, individually in the K-1 200, and in the K-2 500, with her partner Erin Taylor.
Lisa was also named the Maori Senior Sports Woman of the Year 2011, and was a finalist in the 2012 Halberg Sportswoman of the Year.
Beef + Lamb New Zealand believe Lisa’s sporting career is only just beginning and is proud to support such a top athlete.
