King family aims for more medals at Waka Ama Nationals

By Heeni Brown

The talented King family are in full preparation mode for the upcoming Waka Ama Nationals and together the family shares over 200 outrigger canoe medals from both national and international competitions.

One of their most respected medals is Tupuria King's where he came third at the Rio de Janeiro World Championships.

The King children know all too well, that their fine skills were inherited from their parents.  They also appreciate the hard work and support they receive from mum and dad too.

According to mum, Nyree King, “Just always supporting our kids to do whatever they want to do.”

The King family’s New Year’s resolution isn't much different to previous years which is to add more medals to the cabinet.
