Who is Mike Turai Arii Varney?
Prince of the Ocean

His friends call him; the gladiator of the seas - the ocean is his amphitheatre! The courage to meet any challenge! This is what characterises the best junior Polynesian at dugout canoeing and kayaking, winner of the "Iato d'or Junior 2006 - French Polynesia". Born in Papeete 19 years ago, the best senior hope for both sports describes his technique as "high level", especially in marathon, lagoon and speed racing. His totem is the flying fish, marara in Tahitian, which flies just above the water.
