Pukeroa come out on top in W6 500 Final

By Te Kāea

Pukeroa began to attack right from the beginning of this finals race. They were ahead and maintained their lead till the finish.

Pukeroa, Tipani, Puketirini Putiputi, Tuhituhi Gold, Tuhituhi, Team BFF, Pitate and Tiaia were the 8 teams who competed in this race.

It didn’t take long for Pukeroa to move forward very quickly. As a result of this, they took home the gold medal. Seven seconds later, the cook island team Tipani came in at second place and Rāhua Pōkeka’s Puketirini Putiputi received the bronze medal.

I kaha rawa te kōkiri a te kapa Pukeroa i tēnei rēhi whiringa toa. I mua noa atu rātau i ngā kapa katoa.

E waru ngā kapa i eke ki ngā whiringa toa nei. Ko Pukeroa, Tipani,Puketirini Putiputi, Tuhituhi Gold, Tuhituhi, Team BFF, Pitate rātau ko Tiaia.

I tere te koke whakamua a te tīma o Pukeroa i ngā hēkona tuatahi o te rēhi, mea rawa ake ka wikitoria rātau. Whitu hēkona whai muri iho ka hipa te ihu o Tīpani i te rārangi whakamutunga, ā, ko Puketirini Putiputi tērā i tae tuatoru mai.
