Erin will be the first woman to compete in the New Zealand Olympic Kayak Team. Erin qualifed for Beijing 2008 after winning the Oceania Championships in March 2008. She had targetted the London 2012 Olympic Games but a rapid improvement in her performance in the K1 500 saw her acheive her Olympic dream four years earlier.
On representing NZ: A dream come true. Representing my country has always been a goal since I picked up a hockey stick before the age of 5.
My inspiration to excel: Knowing that I have put in the effort and the hard yards to be the best that I can.
