Winning the first ever Olympic gold in women’s sprint canoeing was enough for Lisa Carrington to be named the Māori Sports Person of the Year.

The Ohope Beach 23-year-old was almost half a second ahead of the rest of the K1 200m field in the London Olympics.

A total of 22 Olympians, three Paralympians, 11 world champions and four world champion teams were honoured at the awards in Auckland on the weekend.

Cambridge rower Storm Uru, who scored bronze in London in the double lightweight sculls, was senior male sportsman of the year.

The junior titles were won by Auckland-based waka ama champion Kataraina Brown and Manawatu rugby player Jason Emery.

Mavis Mullins of Dannevirke was Maori Sports Administrator of the Year for her work in shearing, and the sport also featured in the team category, with wool handlers Joanne Kumeroa and Joel Henare taking the title.

Coach of the year was netball’s Waimarama Taumaunu.

Waitangi Tribunal ruling enshrines Treaty as a living document
OPINION: The most significant thing about the Waitangi Tribunal ruling last week that Maori did not sign away Tino Rangatiratanga in 1840 is that it has reset with immediacy the role of the Treaty into the modern day.
Local Politics
OPINION: John Key’s comment about advising the Chilean president that there was a Kiwi in her country, who she wouldn’t want to invite for lunch, went horribly wrong although it was intended as a joke.
Key on the right track
OPINION: The war against terrorism is a no win situation for Prime Minister John Key. He’s damned if he doesn’t do enough and damned if he does too much and goes over the top.
