The down-to-earth 27-year-old from Ohope Beach topped off 2016 with a successful Rio Olympic Games campaign. Here Carrington claimed two medals, becoming the first New Zealand woman to win two medals at one games, including her second Olympic Gold medal on the trot in the K1 200 event. This Olympic title, alongside a nail biting bronze medal in the K1 500, saw Lisa honoured with the role of New Zealand’s closing ceremony flagbearer.
“I have no doubt that there was a positive effect having an athlete of Lisa’s calibre in our Team in Rio,” said New Zealand Olympic Chef de Mission Rob Waddell.
“Her commitment, drive, determination and results were exceptional during Games-time and this inspired not only her fellow kayakers, but also the wider Olympic Team.”
Heading into 2016 Carrington had well and truly established herself as the one to beat on the water having won gold at the Canoe Sprint World Championships in the K1 200 every year since 2011 (plus Olympic Gold 2012), as well as consecutive podium finishes over three years in the second of her two events, the K1 500.
