Sprint - Academy

The 2022 season saw Beth double up with Afton Fitzhenry in the women's C2 500m, as the pair achieved an impressive 6th place at the Multisport European Championships in Munich. 

The duo also took on the World Championships in Halifax, Canada, which acted as their first international together for some time, as they narrowly missed out on a place in the final.

Also a hugely successful canoe marathon paddler, in which she became C1 short course World Champion at the 2022 World Championships, Beth has doubled up canoe sprint for a number of years.

Beth's best result in 2017 was a first place at World Cup 1 at Montemor-o-Velho in the C2 200m event alongside Chloe Bracewell. Good results followed for the rest of the season including a 4th place at the Under 23 European Championships in Belgrade in the C2 200m event. She also achieved a 7th at the Under 23 World Championships in Pitesti in the C2 500m with team-mate Afton Fitzhenry.

Bethany was a keen hockey player, playing at an international level before transitioning to canoeing, having been selected for the Girls 4 Gold programme in 2014.
