British Canoeing has issued a report on the Selection Event that took place last Saturday.
The full report is available here: https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/news/2018/fine-performances-at-sprint-individual-boat-selection-event .
The SRC are pleased to announce the Best Performance awards from the National Championship Regatta.
The trophies will be presented at an early opportunity in the 2018 season, date to be confirmed.
The 2017 Junior Racing Canoeist of the Year is Ieuan James, Forth CC, gold medallist in the Junior and U23 World Championships this year in the K1 200m. The trophy was suitably presented to Ieuan by Liam Heath, another fairly good K1 200m paddler(!!!), who was also the winner of this award in 2002.
In congratulating them we recognise their unstinting effort and dedication to their sport and bringing their natural talent to a peak, resulting in nothing short of truly magnificent performances in the 2017 championships.
And we must not forget the other athletes that took part or those that support them, who are largely in the background and unseen.
Wow! Truly great achievements.
Come and celebrate their success when Liam, Jeanette and Emma are interviewed on Sunday 3rd September 2017, starting at 1:20pm, followed by a presentation at about 1:30 and then autographs and photo signings in the signing tent at approx 1:35pm.”
