South Otago farmer becomes champion pole dancer

A South Otago dairy farmer swaps fence posts by day for poles by night.

Kaitangata dairy farmer Shannon Miller, 30, is a national pole dancing champion who wants to highlight what she calls a "new age" of strength and agility.

Mrs Miller received first place in the expert category at the New Zealand Amateur Pole Performer championships in Auckland on November 10.
