Lisa Carrington and Marty McDowell will fly the Kiwi kayaking flag at the third round of the world cup series in Denmark this weekend.  After just racing the K1 500m in the second world cup in Germany last week, Carrington will revert back to chasing the 200-500m double, honing her ability to compete in both races at the highest level.

McDowell will also race both the K1 500m - the event where he picked up bronze in the first world cup in Portugal - and the K1 1000m, where he's finished in the top-20 at both the first two rounds.

The pair's coach Gordon Walker said they were keen to make the most of the world cup circuit, with limited opportunities to compete before August's world championships in Italy.   "In the course of a year, there are only three or four opportunities to get to do what you actually train for," Walker said. "That means lots of training and not much racing… and that racing should be the fun part and why you actually do the sport. When the opportunity is there, it's important to grab it."

The Denmark round is making its debut at world cup level, with Lake Bagsvaerd near Copenhagen hosting the regatta.
New Zealand K1 200m paddler Scott Bicknell left the national team after the German round to train in England for a couple of weeks, while the K4 women's crew of Jaimee Lovett, Caitlin Ryan, Aimee Fisher and Kayla Imrie arrived home in New Zealand yesterday.
