Morgan Haakma | Sport2020
I am a postgraduate student at the University of Waikato, studying towards my Master’s degree in Health, Sport and Human performance. I have been wakeboarding and competing for around 10 years now and love it so much. I am currently in Orlando training during their summer season, have just got back from the IWWF NEOM World Cup in Saudi Arabia, and am aiming towards competing in the WWA World Champs in Mexico in October, and the IWWF World Champs in Abu Dhabi in November. I am an O’Brien Watersports team rider and an ambassador for Freestyle Watches NZ and StokedNZ Towlies. I am also sponsored by Aspire Chiropractors, who do an amazing job to help me keep my body in it’s best working order (especially after all my injuries). I am forever grateful for the continued support I have from my sponsors, coaches, and family, and have a great appreciation that I could not be where I am today without them. I recognize the support and encouragement I’ve been given and try my best to give back as much as I can by coaching kids during the New Zealand summers, and introducing new people into the sport.
