Teen soars to national win
AT ONLY 14, Shantarna McPherson-Bremner is the under-15 national wakeboarding champion.
Having mastered the Australian wakeboarding scene, the Year 8 student is now jetting off to compete in the Asia and Oceania wakeboarding competition in Taiwan this week.
Leading up to the competition, Shantarna spent every day of the school holidays training at Cables Wake Park.
“This is my first trip overseas. I am excited and nervous – I just don’t know what to expect,” Shantarna said.
Shantarna has been nominated for NewsLocal’s Junior Sports Star award by her mother, who said she excelled at the sport instantly.
NewsLocal’s Junior Sports Star awards are sponsored by Rebel, and 7 News is the official media partner.
