Langman is renowned for her high work rate and energy levels, and continues the push to be a better player. In 2016, she became the first current Silver Fern to play for an Australian team (the NSW Swifts) in the ANZ Championship.

At the peak of her game, the highly respected Langman has become one of the most influential and respected midcourters in world Netball.
Capable of playing all three midcourt positions, Langman is blessed with dazzling speed and athleticism, the super-talented athlete being renowned for her all-round abilities on both attack and defence.
She has represented New Zealand at three Netball World Cups (2007, 2011, 2015) and three Commonwealth Games (2006, 2010, 2014).
She also knows what it takes to win, having been a gold and silver medallist of World or Commonwealth Games campaigns.
Langman was an absolute workhorse in the midcourt for Sunshine Coast in the first-ever Suncorp Super Netball competition and her accomplished performances earned her a spot in the honorary Team of the Year at Centre.
The New Zealander endeared herself to the Sunshine Coast community and was voted the Members' Player of the Year for 2017.
