Slalom - Podium Potential

Bradley is a men’s K1 slalom kayaker and 2018 is his fourth year on the senior British Team. He got his season off to a great start qualifying for his first European Championships final where he came 8th and backed this up with a 9th and 5th places in the first two World Cups. The highlight of his season was winning a silver medal at the U23 World Championships in Ivrea, followed by a K1 Team gold medal at the World Championships in Rio.

In 2016 he won silver at World Cup 5 in Tacen.

Bradley, who started canoeing when he was 10 years old, also ski's and lifts weights when he's not out on the water in his kayak.
