Juniors shine at European Sprint Championships

Last weekend the Junior European Championships were in Zargreb, Croatia. From Elmbridge We had Marton Simon racing K1 1000m and 500m, Marton had an incredible weekend taking the Bronze in the 500m and 4th in the 1000m, it’s been years since we have had these kind of Junior results and we are very proud of him!

Marton’s sister Rebii Simon raced in K2 1000m with Katherine Trotter, this all Elmbridge crew claimed 4th, a fantastic result particularly from Rebii who is only 14!

Congratulations to all three Elmbridge paddlers! We will find out tomorrow the team for the Junior Sprint World Championships.

Katherine Trotter also racing the K1 500m, this Olympic event is very competitive in the Juniors and Katherine’s 6th place is a fantastic achievement! In the past not many of our juniors have ranked so highly in Olympic events, we wish Katherine all the best for the Junior World Championships later this year.
