PURE NEW ZEALAND WOOL CARPET Proudly Supporting Golden Shears Fire resistant, naturally non-allergenic, looks better & lasts longer. 5157733AB 5186843AA 2013 Championships Sevens over shearing Olympics-bound: Sarah Goss at the North Island champs in Marton last year. A two-times Golden Shears lower-grades finalist, her shearing career is on-hold while she represents New Zealand at rugby sevens, targeting a place at the 2016 Olympic Games. Possibly the best-ever gathering of female shearers will take place on the second night of the 53rd Golden Shears, including one who is odds-on to represent New Zealand at the 2016 Olympic Games. She's Sarah Goss, who claimed third place in the 2010 Golden Shears junior final and last year's intermediate final, and who is now making a name as a New Zealand women's sevens rugby representative. Daughter of 1985 Golden Shears intermediate shearing champion and 2008 open wool handling champion Ronnie Goss, her advance up the sevens ranks to representing New Zealand in the women's IRB series this year has put the competition shearing career on the back burner and provided clashes of interest for the family. For example, while her mother was winning the North Island open wool handling title in Marton on February 2, Sarah was in a sevens tournament in the United States. The women's Golden Shears event will feature a mother-and-daughter in Marg Baynes and Ingrid Smith, who hold the women's two-stand eight hours world lamb shearing record. Others lining up are Kerri-Jo Te Huia (women's record 507 lambs in eight hours last year), Jills Burney, women's record of 541 lambs in nine hours in 1989), and six- times Golden Shears open wool handling champion Joanne Kumeroa who has tallies of more than 400 to her name and whose battle with cancer has sparked the creation of the women's event as a fundraiser. Shearer looking to have golden run Local hope: Pongaroa shearer David Buick. Pongaroa farmer David Buick represents the best chance of a Wairarapa win in the Golden Shears Open championship. Buick established himself as a contender in the top class when he reached the New Zealand Open championship final at Te Kuiti in 2009, and has since had two Open competition wins, at the Manawatu Show in 2011 and again last November, as well as reaching finals in several of the few other shows he's contested. In the most recent win at Manfield, he beat reigning Golden Shears Open champion John Kirkpatrick by 10 seconds and ultimately more than two points, a comfortable lead for a 12-sheep contest.
