Patrick and Ben, who train for kayak racing with Lincoln Canoe Club, were selected onto the Super Regional Squad (SRS) as part of the GB talent pathway in British Canoeing at the start of 2017. This summer, they travelled to Neerpelt, Belgium with the SRS to take part in the 37th Open Flemish Championships, their first international competition. Both boys proceeded to semi-finals and finals in several events and came away with silver medals.
Their success continued back in the UK where they competed in a National event in September. Again, both boys proceeded to finals in their events. Ben came away with a gold and 2 silvers for U16s. Patrick came away with an U16 bronze. Congratulations to you both!
