Mauke Maire, a team from the Cook Islands, dominated the Mid Women’s WT12 500 race yesterday at Karāpiro. They maintained a strong lead from the beginning right up until they crossed the finish line.

The teams who earned a spot in this final were Tūrangawaewae Sistaz, Mauke Maire, Puketirini Paddle Pops, Pukeroa Hunibees, Māreikura, Mana Kōtiro, Paeax2 and Te Rangitotohu.

All teams raced very well; however, it was Mauke Maire who displayed great determination, which lead to them being awarded the gold medal. Pukeroa Hunibees came in at second place and Tūrangawaewae Sistaz received the bronze medal.
