McFall Fuel began supporting Luuka Jones a year prior to the Olympics in 2016 by helping with her travel to training. The determination to be better for Rio saw four years of dedicated training to stay at the forefront in the K1W event and Luuka won silver at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 stunning not only her competitors but also many New Zealanders. Having finished 14th in London, the gains from the 21st at the Beijing Olympics at the age of 19 did not fulfil Luuka’s dream but Rio saw the success she wanted. Currently, Luuka is preparing for the Olympic Games in Japan in 2020.
