2014 Canoe Sprint Championship: Young Kiwis eclipse Aussies

2014 ICF Oceania Canoe Sprint Championship: Young Kiwi stars eclipse the Aussies

Penrith, Sydney, Australia: 28 February - 2 March 2014

The Kiwis have certainly made an impression at the ICF Oceania Canoe Sprint Champs in Sydney over the weekend - the juniors impressive medal haul eclipsing the Aussies in the U18 division.

The brightest star would have to be Kurtis Imrie who has gathered an impressive three golds and a silver in this competition – gold in the K1 1000m and 200m plus the K4 1000m with team mates Quaid Thompson, Taris Harker and Toby Brooke, plus silver in the K2 1000m with Taris Harker.

Not to be outdone, Open para paddler Scott Martlew claimed medals in all three of his K1 races – two Oceania Golds in the 500m and 1000m and a Silver in the 200m. Arch rival Brock Ingram settled for second in the first two races but managed to pip Scott in the 200m by just 0.01 of a second.

The women’s races saw some good results in the team boats with Bronze being the colour of the day – Briar McLeeley and Britney Ford finishing in third in the K2 500m and their K4 500m with team mates Bronwyn Larsen and Elise Legarth.

The team is thrilled with the overall results featuring 16 A-finals, five Gold, two Silver and two Bronze medals. The future is certainly looking bright for our young Kiwi paddlers.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
