After narrowly missing the national title of New Zealand, Blenky claimed the continental title of Oceania Champion!
During the qualifications, under dry conditions, Blenky did a solid run and took 3rd place.

Less than a month before the opening of the World Cup, our flying Kiwi seems sharper than ever. Let's hope it lasts!
