Following on from the June regatta and the publication of the Paracanoe team on 7 June and Sprint team on 10 June, the Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe IP has provided an update on the teams competing at the World and European Championships this August.
Stewart Clark (Chelmsford) will join the paracanoe team racing at the World Championships in Halifax, Canada and European Championships in Munich, Germany this summer, whilst Jon Tarrant (Royal Leamington Spa) will link up with the European Championships team in mid August.
Stewart, who came finished 10th at the 2021 World Championships, will line up in the men’s VL2 at both international competitions after making the published performance standard during a three race opportunity on 16 June.
Initially announced as a reserve for the European Championships, Jon Tarrant will now line up in the men’s KL3 in Munich after Rob Oliver declined his place on the team. Jon, who made his international debut at the World Cup in Poznan this May, will line-up with teammate Jonny Young in the event.
An update has also been published regarding the canoe sprint team for the upcoming World and European Championships. Subject to achieving the performance standard, Beth Gill (Chelmsford) and Afton Fitzhenry (Belfast) will have a chance to race the women’s C2 500m at the World Championships.
A race off between the pair will also decide who will race who will take on the women’s C1 500m at the European Championships.
Sammy Sullivan (Wiltshire Youth) and Anna Palmer (Reading) will race off against Beth Gill and Afton Fitzhenry to be selected in the women’s C2 500m at the European Championships, whilst Anna Palmer will take on the women’s C1 5000m in Munich.
