All Three of our girls, Katherine Trotter, Amy Ward & Rebi Simon, who were selected for the Worlds, made their final A races at the Sprint World Junior and Under 23 Championship held in Welland Canada. The final session of the Championships was well worth waiting for as all three British boats stepped up to the challenge in their respective A finals. Katherine Trotter finished 9th in the U23 K1 500m with a massive personal best of 1.53.03 with Amy Ward & Sam Rees-Clark 9th in the junior K2 500m in 1.48.79.
An outstanding performance from 17 year old Rebi Simon who battled hard to clinch 2nd place. Rebi finished in 1.54.60 behind Denmark’s Emma Jorgensen who was 1st. A well deserved world silver medal to add to her K1 1000m European Junior title in Poznan earlier this year.
Well done girls, Elmbridge Canoe Club is very proud of all your achievements and hard work this year.
