Irena Wanikau —

Tangiariki Wanikau trained and competed at the 25th Gasshuku Championships in the weekend alongside 55 others from as far and wide as Australia, Gore, North Auckland and in between and gained her best results yet. She was placed in the Black Belt Under 18’s Girls category with 3 others and came 1st in the 3 events she entered into-1st in Kata, 1st in Kumite and 1st in Black Belt Team Kata. We are very proud of Tangiariki’s and all other Turangi members achievements who achieved 10 first place wins from the 16 events they were entered into. It was a great weekend for Karate in our region.
