The last of our Olympic hopefuls head off this weekend for their build-up to the Olympic Games. 

Scott Martlew with Coach Leigh Barker left for Czech just over a week ago where he trains for his important Paralympic qualifier being held in Germany prior to World Cup 1. 

Our Women's K4, Jaimee Lovett, Aimee Fisher Caitlin Ryan and Kayla Imrie, with Coach Rene Olsen, departed last Saturday for training camp in Portugal.  They will be competing in World Cups 1 and 2 (in Portugal and Germany) in their build-up to Rio where they will contest the Womens K4 500m. 

Lisa small file.jpgLisa Carrington and Marty McDowell depart on Saturday for Munich.  Thereafter they'll compete in all three World Cups before taking on their K1 events in Rio August.  

This is an important build-up and one they've all been training hard for. We wish them all the very best over the coming months.
