New Zealand’s men’s and women’s K4 500m crews both progressed to the semi-finals and the Kiwi pairing of Kurtis Imrie and Max Brown advanced to the B Final of the men’s K2 1000m on day two of the ICF Canoe Sprint World Cup in Duisburg, Germany.

On another quality day of action in near perfect conditions on the Wedau Regatta Course, the youthful Kiwi women’s combination of Alicia Hoskin (Poverty Bay), Briar McLeely (North Shore), Danielle Watson (Mana) and Britney Ford (Poverty Bay) produced a solid paddle to cross the line seventh in a time of 1:39.003.

The women in black finished more than six seconds adrift of heat winners, Poland, the 2018 World Championships bronze medallists. the Kiwis return to the fray later today at 7.24pm to line up for their semi-final.

New Zealand’s developmental K4 500m crew of Ashton Reiser (North Shore), Ben Duffy (Arawa), Zach Ferkins (Poverty Bay) and Hamish Legarth (Hawkes Bay) also earned a route into the semi-finals.

The quartet, competing in the third of four heats, clocked 1:26.503 to place seventh behind Slovakia (1:22.873) and advance on best time into the next stanza, which takes place later today at 7.42pm.

One week after Max Brown (Whanganui) and Kurtis Imrie (Mana) enjoyed the finest regatta in their career to place eighth in the A Final in Poznan, the duo qualified for the B Final of the K2 1000m in Duisburg.

The young rising talents of the New Zealand men’s programme sat fifth at halfway in the semi-final before winding up sixth in 3:20.767 behind the powerhouse victors – Germany (3:14.150).

Brown and Imrie return tomorrow for the B Final at 9.06pm, where they will line up in lane one.

Once again, a young, developing New Zealand squad will have learned much from racing against top-class opposition on the global stage.

The action on the third and final day of the regatta will start on Sunday at 7pm (NZ time) and can be followed on www.canoeicf.com
