Silver Fern Katrina Rore reflects on gold medal-filled 2019

Silver Ferns defender Katrina Rore looked back fondly on a year that saw her achieve what no other netballer ever had, lifting the Netball World Cup as well as domestic titles in New Zealand and Australia.

Initially dropped as captain by Silver Ferns coach Noeline Taurua, Rore let her performances on the court do the talking for the Central Pulse, helping them to the 2019 ANZ Premiership - earning a national recall.

From there, Rore was a member of the Kiwi squad that stunned Australia at this year's Netball World Cup in Liverpool.

However, Rore was still not satisfied with her haul, then jetting to Sydney to link up with the New South Wales Swifts in Australia's Super Netball League - where, again, she was involved in a championship winning side.

Appearing on TVNZ1's Breakfast's end of year special, and with a glass of bubbles in hand, Rore looked back on easily the most decorated 12 months for a player in the history of netball.

"I don't feel like I can beat this year, but I'll kind of try and be me" Rore said.

"I had to go to a school - didn't have to - chose to go to a school the other day, and got out all the medals. I was like, 'They're all gold, they're all mine, there's three of them.'

"It's pretty cool when you stop and have a look and realise that so much hard work has gone into this. But I'm very privileged in the fact that I've had three amazing teams that I've been able to be a part of, and without those teams, I wouldn't have done what I was able to do as well.

"I'm lucky I have people in my life who push me to succeed and achieve what I can."

As for what happens next, Rore says she isn't planning on slowing down any time soon.

"I love a challenge. I don't like to sit still for too long."

Rore has deservedly been given time off from the Silver Ferns' next assignment, as the team heads back to England for netball's Quad Series in January.
