Laura-Langman-175xLaura Langman

 

Dynamic mid-courter Laura Langman is one of the finest ball carriers in the game, boasting an incredible record of taking to the court for every Silver Ferns match since her selection in 2005. Langman is only the third player to have reached the 100 game milestone for New Zealand which she did in January 2014.

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, played for the Northern Mystics in the 2014 season and has signed again for the Mystics in 2015.

Born and bred in the Waikato, Langman’s elite Netball career started more than twelve 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. Langman was also a member of the Silver Ferns team which won gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

As a key team member and vice-captain of the Silver Ferns, Langman was a linchpin is securing the silver medal for New Zealand at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
