Falkland Islander in Shearing world championship Semi final!!!!

So exciting the Falkland Islands have a shearer in the semi final of the World Championships Shearing competition in Masterton, New Zealand.  We have two shearers representing us and two wool handlers.  In the shearing competition we have Lee Molkenbur and Evan Jones.  The boys have so far came fifth in the team shear and we are eagerly waiting for Evan to compete in the semi final of the individual shearing.  The girls Vikki Lee and Sammi Hirtle also did an awesome job in the team event for wool handling and came third (IN THE WORLD).  How cool is that.

  1. Great! A little glory for the Faulkands. Ever since I read about the shearing contests In New Zealand I have wondered in the Faulkands would be represented. It is nice to know that those participating are doing well.
