2019 Shropshire Paddlesport Hasler

Marathon
2019 Shropshire
We were few but were we were strong! There were only 8 of us racing at Shropshire but we collected plenty of points. Well done Arnie on your promotion & your best result yet, 4th in Division 9 K1. The Div 4 k1 race was split by a narrow boat blocking the canal for a couple of minutes causing a robust exchange of opinions but Mark still managed to get 3rd. The Lefflers triumphed again with Peter getting second in Div 7 K1, Amelie coming first in her U10 girls race, & Adam & Monty winning Div 9 K2! The Elliots won Div6 K2 & Conrad was promoted too. Well done everyone & thanks Paddlesport for a good race.

Tom at the ICF World cup, Poznan, Poland

Sprint
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!

Team Solihull at the Anker Valley Hasler marathon 2019

Marathon
2019 Anker Hasler
A small, brave team of Solihull paddlers braved the difficult, choppy canal at the Anker Valley Hasler. The younger Lefflers did us proud though,coming 1st & second in their races. The rest of us are working on a cunning plan of lulling the opposition into a false sense of security by achieving average results in the middle of our divisions before peaking later in the year and amazing the opposition with some amazing results!!
