Teneale Hatton wins GOLD in the K1 5000m at World Champs

Teneale Hatton wins GOLD in the K1 5000m at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Champs

Teneale Hatton smashed the K1 5000m tonight to claim Gold - 23 seconds ahead of the Hungarian Renata Csay and third placed Anne Rikala of Finland. Teneale hit out hard from the start line and found clear water early on.  She took advantage of this to steadily increase her lead on the main pack, maintaining this throughout the race.  By the final lap there was no question as to her dominance in this race – it was just a question of how large her lead would be. 

The main group was tight until the German and Finnish paddlers pulled away at the final turn gaining a 15 second lead on the Norwegian and Bulgarian paddlers.

Teneale’s win in the U23 division of the ICF Ocean Surf Ski Championships in Portugal in July shows her strength in long distance racing and prepared her well for this event.

She is naturally thrilled with this result and her coaching and management team couldn’t be more pleased.

Lisa Carrington races her final in the K1 200m tonight.
