Well done Tom! Selected to go to the world cup in Poznan, Tom competed well in the heats & semifinals & was selected for the 1000m and 500m B finals. But the 2 finals were only 20 minutes apart. So after achieving a great second place in the 500m B final, Tom had hardly any time to recover before he was back on the water for another final. Well done on your 7th place in the 1000m final, Tom. That must have been harder than any of your canal training sessions!
Great day paddling the Avon from Stratford to Bidford on Sunday 12 May . Six weirs by all means possible including shooting, lining, lining through locks and portaging due to the lack of water
