British Champion 2009

So it already been a few months since the Worlds and it has been straight back into training at the National Water sports Centre in Nottingham for the British Championships 2009.

With the rain pouring and the wind blowing it was a typical British event.

The best of the British freestyle competition paddlers came together to compete to be National Champion. Fresh from the World Championships it was no surprise that I won the Ladies squirt boating event and Dave Bainbridge and James Reeves won their events.

And in the freestyle event, my first event of the year and only my fifth time back in the boat since February, I was extremely pleased to finish in 3rd place and secure some all important British Team 2010 selection points.
