The U18 K4 crew of Quaid Thompson, Kurtis Imrie, Taris Harker and Toby Brooke smashed the 1000m this morning to claim the Kiwi teams 8th medal at the Oceania Canoe Sprint Champs this morning. 3.46 seconds ahead of the next crew, a top Aussie combo drawn from all over Australia, the NZ crew semed to cruise fairly comfortably over the finishline, belying the tough race they had just paddled.
The womens K1 200m saw Briar McLeeley through to the A final finishing in 5th in 47.64, 2.2 seconds off the winners pace but just 0.78 seconds off the bronze.
The Womens U18 K2s raced a tough straight final with Britney Ford and Briar McLeeley finishing 5th and Brownwyn Larsen and Elise Legarth 7th.
Scott Martlew again battled against the German Tom Kierey and arch rival Australian Brock Ingram in the 200m and came in a very close 3rd place for the GP medal but 2nd place for the Oceania Silver.
This sees then end of the Oceania racing with come exceptional results for the team - a total of 5 GOLD, 2 SILVER and 2 BRONZE medals along with 17 racing A finals!

Four more Oceania medals for our team today increasing the medal haul to seven medals to date. Kurtis Imrie again paddled a fearless race finishing just 0.21 seconds ahead of Australian Sam McTigue from WA. Taris Harker, who also made the A final, finished sixth just over a second later, so the race was tight all the way!
Scott Martlew had a close finish against German Tom Kierey who just pipped him for first by 0.21 seconds for the GP medal. However the German not being eligible for the Oceania medal means Scott wins the Oceania gold and takes the GP silver.
In the women's team boats Britney Ford and Briar McLeeley claimed Bronze while Bronwyn Larsen and Elise Legarth had to settle for fifth. A valiant effort from both crews and another podium finish for the team.
Topping off the day the four women went on to claim Bronze in their K4 500m.
We look forward to Mens K4 first up tomorrow morning followed by the U18 WK2 200 and the Para 200m. Give it your all team!
