The Waka Ama national sprint champs have now been on for a week, with the finalists gearing up for tomorrow.

The atmosphere at Lake Karapiro in Waikato has been electric with thousands of spectators and participants.

And if that wasn't enough - crews have been delivering, with new records broken throughout the week too.

Organiser Lara Collins spoke to Leigh-Marama McLachlan about some of the highlights of the competition.
