Olympic Dreams - C1 Winners

Women's C1 - Unfortunately not an Olympic event
Mallory Franklin from Shepperton took the honours. 
These shots were taken in the warm up area, thus the lack of white on the water!
Men's C1 - an Olympic event. Don't ask me why the men get in and the ladies don't!
Dave Florence took the men's title. 

He didn't even look too knackered!

Olympic Dreams - K1 Winners

There is only one slot available at the Olympics in each competition category for each nation.
The Men's K1
 Richard Hounslow was the winner in a very hard fought and close race.  


  Women's K1 
 The winner was Lizzie Neave from our local club, Stafford and Stone.
Both will now be nominated to the British Olympic Association to compete in their respective disciplines.
Well done both!

Olympic Dreams Part 1

This weekend has seen the British Olympic selection event for slalom take place at Lea Valley near Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire.
The event took place on the same facility that will be used for the Olympics.
It's big water!
and it's a long course.
Complete with a kayak lift to take you from the lake up to the start.
