Streaming ahead at the World Champs – Day Two

The World shearing and woolhandling championships are being watched live around the World thanks to the livestreaming of the event from the championships website (www.worldshearingchamps.com).

The streaming is also being carried by Maori Tv (www.maoritelevision.com) and includes streaming-specific commentary and interviews throughout every minute of the four-day championships, along with highlights packages.

The championships in Invercargill's ILT Stadium Southland entered the second day with champions galore in action from the start in the heats of the All Nations Open Shearing and Open woolhandling events, the warm-up phase providing opportunity for World Championships competitors to tune-up for the World Championship events which start in earnest with the first round of the machine shearing this afternoon.
The heats of the All Nations shearing and woolhandling were being run simultaneously, the first heats featuring three former World champions – shearing guns Rowland Smityh, of Hastings, the 2014 champion and Australian legend and 2000 and 2005 winner Shannon Warnest, and 2012 woolhandling champion and 2017 favourite Joel Henare, based now in Dunedin and from Gisborne.

The second heats included New Zealand World title shearing hopes John Kirkpatrick(pictured), of Napier, and host-city shearer Nathan Stratford.
