New Zealand Team Heads to ICF Junior & U23 World Championships in Hungary

The Junior and U23 New Zealand canoe sprint team head off to commence their World Champs campaign on Sunday 15th June. This team of young paddlers from all around New Zealand will be led by Coaches Leigh Barker and Gergerly Gyertyanos and Team Manager Alan Thompson.

The Junior & U23 World Canoe Sprint Championship will be held at the National Watersports Centre in Szeged, Hungary from 17-20 July 2014.

The squad has been put through a series of rigorous training camps in Rotorua in the build up to their departure but having this dedicated month training together in Europe will give them a much more concentrated training schedule and will cement their team boat combinations.

Some members of this squad attended the Junior World Championships in Canada last year where the K2 combination of Kim Thompson and Aimee Fisher claimed a bronze medal in the K2 500m. Aimee has moved on to the senior divisions this year and combinations for all crews will be changing. Kim will now focus on the U23 women’s K4 with team mates Danielle Currie, Lucy Johnson and Kayla Imrie.

At the Oceania Canoe Sprint Champs in Sydney last year, where the NZ team took a fantastic haul of eight medals, the most promising results came from Wellington paddler Kurtis Imrie who collected gold medals in both the U18 K1 200m and 1000m, as well as in the K4 1000m with Quaid Thompson, Taris Harker and Toby Brooke, followed by a silver in the K2 1000m with Taris Harker.

The depth of this young team augers well for the World Championships where we look forward to some exciting results.
