Waitohu Ngarewa is an iron woman. The 17 year-old Hawera girl won the gruelling Napier Ironmaori in just over six hours recently.
The event, which attracted more than 2500 entrants is comprised of an individual 2km swim, 90km bike and 21km run. Waitohu entered to challenge herself and gain a bit of event experience, she never expected to win.
"I was only doing it to try it out," she said. Now, she's been bitten by the endurance race bug. "It was really fun, I didn't expect to enjoy it that much."
