Final report from Duisburg World Cup: Unfortunatley, the K2 A Final did not go well. A lack of experience is to blame I think… We had a bit of a shocker of a start, and just never came back from it. A good learning experience though, and to make an A Final on our first regatta (and having only paddled together 3 times before the event) is a great achievement. It’s amazing how we continuously raise the bar. A while ago, we would have been happy with a B Final, and now, it’s an A Final and a position in it!
Team South Africa had a very successful regatta, with both team boats making A Final, Shaun making A Finals for the 500m and 1000m, Jen narrowly missing out on a medal in the 500m K1, and Bridge getting a silver in the 1000m!
Well, we woke up to pouring rain this morning, which was a nice surprise as it’s been so hot here in Hungary! There was no waiting time as we got back on Monday from Germany and jumped straight back into training!
