Lisa Carrington is 27 and was born in 1989, in Tauranga. Lisa Carrington is a canoe sprinting 200m distance champion since 2011. In 2015 she took it up a notch, adding the K1 500m world title. The Whakatane-raised Carrington, of Te Aitanga-a-Mahaki and Ngati Porou descent, first started paddling as a surf lifesaver and has represented New Zealand in that sport too.
To me Lisa Carrington sounds like a successful woman who knows what she wants to do in life. I would love to ask Lisa Carrington so many questions about what she had to do to achieve her dream.
