The Canoe Slalom Australian National Championships were held at Bradys Lake last Friday, Saturday and Sunday.Forty paddlers from NSW, VIC, WA and TAS competed including 12 from this Club.Recently selected Olympic representatives Tim Anderson (MK1) and Tristan Carter (MC1) took the honours in their respective classes. It didn't go un-noticed that Tim flew straight from London (where he's been training) to Hobart especially to paddle at Bradys stating he wouldn't miss the chance to compete at this iconic location.Club members Kate Eckhardt and Claire Clements were on the podium in the womens' with Kate first and Claire third in both WK1 and WC1. Claire also took bronze in the Kayak Cross event.A brilliant few days of top class racing at a location we're so fortunate to have at our door step.Of course it takes a small army of volunteers to prepare, set up and run the event - to all of you the Club is extremely grateful! ...
