Duncan arrived back in the city after spending two weeks in a managed isolation facility in Auckland and was greeted by Dunedin Mayor Aaron Hawkins, a kapa haka group, the City of Dunedin Pipe Band and friends and family.

The 24-year-old clinched her second consecutive FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship in the last race of the season in Italy at the start of the month.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
