ICF Junior & U23 Canoe Sprint World Championships, Canada

2 August 2013

ICF Junior & U23 Canoe Sprint World Championships, Canada
1-4 August 2013

The U18 and U23 Teams kicked off their racing in Canada today at 9.00am (CAN) = 1.00am (NZ). Although showing strong performances in the Czech Nationals they are realistic about the increased level of competition at the Champs.

The first A Final of the competition was achieved by the Jun Womens K4 of Danielle Currie, Kim Thompson, Aimee Fisher and Rebecca Cole in the 500m race. The girls placed fifth in their heat forcing them into the Semi where they needed a "top three" placing to make the A Final. They did this in style, starting out strong and maintaining the top spot throughout the race to finish first in a time of 1.41.048.

Two more A Finals were secured - this time by the U23 men. Darryl Fitzgerald raced a sharp semi-final to place second only 0.31 seconds behind the Hungarian winner Dombvori; and the K2 crew of Zac Quickenden and Jarrod Fitzgerald took third in the K2 1000m in a time of 3.39.465 to snatch their spot in the A Final.

Kurtis Imrie had a great heat in the Jun MK1 1000m, finishing first in a time of 3.49.392 convincingly putting him through to the Semi. However, despite a strong performance and a better time in the semi he had to settle for fourth which puts him in the B Final on Saturday.

The Jun MK2 also had to settle for a B Final in the 1000m as Aiden Nossiter and Max Brown placed fifth in their semi in a time of 3.48.990.

The rest of the team races tomorrow in the early hours NZ time and there's sure to be some more exciting races. Click the link below to see the Junior Womens K4 Semi final race and interview.
