ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships Kiwis Off to Good Start

7 August 2014

ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships Kiwis Off to a Good Start

Today marks the start of the ICF Canoe Sprint World Champs in Moscow, Russia. The temperature has been around 30 degrees all week and the course has had a very consistent side tail wind that is strong enough to cause a little chop.

Scott Martlew kicks off the racing for the Kiwis, paddling the LTA K1 200m.

Team Manager Grant Restall reports:

"Scott's heat placed him third in a slower than normal time of 42.096. The German (last year's winner) won the heat in a quick time of 39.6. Only the winner goes straight to final so Scott moved through to the semi. Scott had a fastest start then the German Tom Kiery and Brit Robert Oliver blasted through the middle section and Scott matched their finishing pace.

His semi final a few hours later saw him drawing the harder of the two semis. However in his own words he "stepped up a gear and raced a good race" to secure himself an A final berth. There is no margin for error in a 200m sprint and Scott showed improvement from start to finish easing out his neighbour Australian Brock Ingram to nab a place in the A final in a time of 41.709.

Overall Scott's coach, Leigh Barker was happy with both races especially the starts but will work to control the stroke rate.

With 73 countries and over 900 competitors there is a lot of excitement building. It's great to see countries like North Korea, Israel and Ukraine attending despite the troubles in their own countries.

This course is where Ian Ferguson and Alan Thompson attended their first Olympics in 1980. It is a nice course but has had a face lift since 1980!"

Looking forward to more Kiwi legends at this Champs.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
