Tom at the ICF World cup, Poznan, Poland

Tom 2019 world cup
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!


National champion
Awesome, Tom!!! National champion in K1 500m AND 1000m. Well done on your perseverance, discipline and commitment and well deserved!

It was dry and warm and there was a great atmosphere with terrific support from the supporters at the European Nations Dragon Boat Championships in Brandenburg, Germany in August. The competition was tough, as could be expected from the 1500 athletes from the national teams of 18 countries. Well done to David and Michael who paddled in the under 18 GB teams and won 3 bronze medals in the 500m and 200m races.
