Teneale Hatton –World Champion And World Record Breaker

Teneale Hatton –World Champion And World Record Breaker

Moscow, 9 August 2014 - Day Four

Team Manager Grant Restall reports from Russia

What a day for Teneale Hatton ... World Champion and World Record holder in the WK1 1000m!

Teneale started the race strong, leading out the race from the get-go, but halfway through her competitors decided it was time to push past her. Teneale set a high pace in the early part of the race but being an experienced competitor she stuck to her race plan. The pace was high and so much so she set a PB at the 500m mark. At 200m to go she was in third spot but unleashed a huge effort to catch the other two and lunge them out on the line to win by just 0.05 of a second. In doing so all three broke the World record with Teneale claiming the win and the record.

“I am so stoked with the win and the time is an added bonus” said the smiling Hatton.

It was a moving moment for Teneale to see the Kiwi flag raised in Russia at her medal ceremony but she had to settle down and prepare for next challenge of the day, the 5000m.

The WK1 5000m was a tough race which took out two of the lead paddlers about midway through the race. Teneale was just off the lead pack for most of the race but hot on the heels of her World Record beating 1000m race, just didn't quite have the omph needed to crack the group and finished sixth, Louisa Sawyers from Great Britain winning the Gold. A great effort from a gutsy paddler!

Lisa Carrington continued the trend of success from the Kiwi womens K1s, winning her semi-final of the 200m and putting her through to the A Final in fine form posting a very fast 37.961. Tomorrow night (NZ Time) will see her contest both the K1 500 and K1 200.

Scotty Bicknell finished 8th in his Semi of the K1200 in a time of 35.85.

The Womens K4 B final of the 500m saw the NZ team take 5th place in 1:35.063 .

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.
