Burdekin cane cutter Roxanne Vass has maintained her undefeated status at the Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships (AHCCC), taking out a remarkable fourth-consecutive Ladies Cup.
Vass, 45, made quick work of the cane on Saturday, cutting her way through three seven-metre drills in a speedy 5:37.03.
She was followed by locals Sue King (6:59.69) and cousin Nikki Vass (7:03.00)
The Ladies Cup was first introduced to the AHCCC in 2016, meaning Vass is the only woman in the competition’s history to win the title.
Meanwhile in the inaugural Ladies Novice competition, Roma’s Anne Tuttle proved she too was handy with the cane knife, finishing in a respectable 6:56.16. Germany’s Kathi Strein (8:01.22) and the Burdekin’s Krystal Kerr (8:53.44) finished second and third respectively.
