Waka ama paddlers are returning to New Zealand with more than 60 medals, after competing in the Va'a World Sprints in Canada.
The event in Calgary attracted 265 outrigger canoe racers from Aotearoa.
Waka Ama New Zealand chief executive Lara Collins says they did better in the double-hull races this time - and puts that down to sheer hard work.
She says the teams have done a lot of training to get this far and the key to making a double-hulled waka go fast is teamwork.
Ms Collins says all that time and energy paid off in the long run and she's left with a lasting image of a sea of black singlets on the water.
