Ngā Whārangi Kaitākaro
The Waikato speedster has been a standout performer for the All Blacks Sevens since making his debut in 2008 where he ran in 10 tries in his first three tournaments.
He has crossed the line more times than any other New Zealand sevens player and is in the top five highest try scorers in Sevens Series history. His stunning form in 2013 when New Zealand won the Sevens Series and the Sevens Rugby World Cup in Moscow saw him named World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year.
Mikkelson has been part of the team that has won six Sevens Series titles, two Rugby World Cup Sevens titles and two Commonwealth Games gold medals.
He is the most capped All Blacks Sevens player of all time.
