  Celebrate our three multi champions on Sunday 3rd September 2017

“Congratulations to our three multi Olympic World and European Champions. They are clearly putting GB on the map as a Canoe Sprint nation.

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.”
