Summary: Martina McMahon is grace personified, from her elegant strokes to her breathtaking shot making. McMahon burst onto the Women’s Race 4 Eight scene as a 20-year old at the Women’s Race 4 Eight ’15 at the New York Athletic Club, advancing to the semifinals and taking third. McMahon continued her dazzling play at the 2015 Women’s Race 4 Eight Player’s Championship, advancing to the semifinals for the second consecutive event and pushing Aisling Reilly to a tiebreaker. McMahon is a fixture in the final rounds of nearly every WR48 event in which she plays, as evidenced by her impressive run to the final of the WR48 NYAC ’16. McMahon’s athleticism and passion for the game should see her hoist WR48 crystal in the near future
