22-year-old Joe Wilson - one of four paddle boarders from the Mairangi Bay Surf Lifesaving Club to compete - placed second in his category, with a time of six hours and 20 minutes.

3:10 How women in sports are making inroads for equality everywhere

Women are paid less, suffer penalties for  taking time off to have children and are often considered less  competitive and less capable of  generating big revenue. It's happening in the board room and the locker room says Macaela Mackenzie. She's  a senior editor at Glamour magazine who has spent years writing about women athletes and their struggle for equality in sports. As the FIFA World Cup games play out in our stadiums, she says women are using sport as a way to change misogynistic attitudes and fight for equal pay which is so inextricably tied to equal opportunity. Her new book is called:  Money, Power Respect: How Women In Sports Are Shaping the Future of Feminism.
