🥇 INCREDIBLE RESULTS 🥇 from Harbour local, Ashton Reiser 🚣‍♂️, who recently received $1000 from the Hand Up Fund! He's definitley one to watch out for!

👇 Read why below...👇

"I've just raced at the Oceania and NZ Canoe Racing Championships this past weekend and it went better than I could've even dreamed! I took home 5 NZ and Oceania Titles including my first ever individual NZ title (in any age group or sport)! This included winning the triple 200m crown (All 3 200m events) and both K4 events (200m and 500m). I also managed to qualify for all 3 K1 individual A-finals for the first time ever (200m, 500m and 1000m) with 2 new personal best times!

I just want to say thank you so much to you and everyone else at North Harbour Sport for the Hand Up Fund that I received, I put this funding towards a brand new Nelo Sete K1 Kayak which is made in Portugal and has just been released in time for the Tokyo Olympics!"
