Cory Taylor's success hailed
Surf Life Saving New Zealand sport manager Mike Lord describes Cory Taylor’s win in the fifth round of the Nutri-Grain Ironman Series at Surfers Paradise on Saturday as a “huge achievement” and says everyone in the New Zealand surf lifesaving body is “incredibly proud” of this milestone.
“To win an event of this calibre is incredible and just goes to show how talented he is,” Lord said.
“He has really cemented his place as one of the best ironmen in the world now.”
After his win, Gisborne’s Taylor said he was still pinching himself, and he wanted to thank people for their messages and support.
Taylor was a member of the New Zealand Black Fins team at the World Championships last year in Adelaide where he won the world board title.Picture supplied
