Maggie Greening

Waka Ama Stalwart

Maggie Greening has been involved in the sport of Waka Ama since the early 1990’s, firstly as a paddler and then as a member of the national committee of Nga Kaihoe O Aotearoa for over 15 years. Maggie was very much part of the initial growth of the sport of Waka Ama and implemented many changes into the National Club Sprint Championships from the early 2000’s, to cement this event as the highlight of the Waka Ama Calendar. Maggie drove much of the effort to host a successful World Sprints in 2006 and this was a real turning point in the sport in terms of professional event delivery for world sprints events. In her NKOA roles, Maggie held positions of Secretary and President at various times, and has certainly been a key figure in our sport’s history and in the colourful tapestry that has helped lead us to where we are today. Maggie’s contribution to this tapestry has been immense, and we appreciate all that she has done.
