Aimee Fisher and Kurtis Imrie will both face double A finals tonight at the Junior/U23 World Champs in Romania. Aimee Fisher has stormed into her second final at the under-23 and junior canoe sprint world championships in Pitesti, Romania, overnight, after the fastest time in the under-23 K1 200m semifinals.

The Hawke’s Bay paddler posted a 42.768sec time in the brutal headwind to set up an intriguing final day, where she’ll also contest the K1 500m final.
