GEMMA COOKSON

Gemma wanted to spend more time with her Dad after she finished UNI, and it was either diving or farming, so having a competitive swimming and lifeguarding background and disliking mud… she knew which one it would be. Her dad has been into competitive spearfishing for years, representing New Zealand many times and so they entered the nationals together as a team. To her surprise she was selected to represent New Zealand in Tahiti, Indo-pacific's 2014 and then won the woman’s Spearfishing Competition at the National Champs later on that year so in an effort to rapidly improve my diving she signed up to train with John Wright through the Auckland Freediving Club.
