Almost game time

Excitement is building for our Olympic canoe sprint team as their arrival in Rio is just six days away. 

The Opening Ceremony of the Olympics took place without our kayak team as they instead opted to keep their training plan intact and continue to train in their respective camps, mainly because once they arrive in Rio access to the flat water venue will be severely limited while the Rowing takes place. 

Lisa Carrington and Marty McDowell arrive at the Olympic Village on the 10th with coach Gordon Walker and the Womens K4, Jaimee Lovett, Caitlyn Ryan, Aimee Fisher and Kayla Imrie all arrive on the 12th with coach Rene Olsen.  

They decided against the fanfare in favour of a more structured and consistent build up in their training.  They'll have a few days to familarise themselves with the course before racing starts on the 15th with Lisa and Marty hitting out first.  The K4 doesn't race until the 19th. 

We send a massive amount of love and support from everyone back home and can't wait to see the team in action! 

More good news - Alison Harris will be officiating at the Rio Olympics so it will be great for our athletes to see a familiar face. A great achievement to be selected to officiate at this level event - well done to Ali.
