Dynamic mid-courter Laura Langman has gained a reputation as one of the finest ball carriers in the game. The 27 year old boasts an incredible record of taking to the court for every Silver Ferns match since her selection in 2005.
Langman is the vice-captain of the Silver Ferns and after six years of ANZ Championship netball playing for the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic, has recently signed for the Northern Mystics for the 2014 season.
Born and bred in Waikato, Langman is nearing her 100th Test Cap for the national side, a milestone she is likely to reach on the UK tour in January, 2014. Her netball career started more than ten years ago when chosen for the NZU21 side at the age of 16. High Performance selectors were impressed by Langman’s athleticism and innate ability to feed her shooters with apparent ease.
Just one year later, Langman made the Silver Ferns squad and won her first test cap against England in 2005 at the age of nineteen. That same year, she led New Zealand to a memorable win in the World Youth Championships and in 2006, was in the Silver Ferns team which won a Commonwealth Games gold medal in the final against the Australian Diamonds in Melbourne.
