2012 SA Sprint Titles
SA State Sprint Titles – West Lakes, Sat 11th & Sun 12th Feb
West Lakes, A. M. Ramsay Regatta Course is the venue for this weekend’s South Australian State Sprint Championships with 2011 ICF Athlete of the Month winner Hannah Davis, 200m sprint specialist Matt Goble and senior paddler Luke Morrison set to dominate proceedings.
Racing will kick off at 8.30am on Saturday with Nathan Luce, the new SASI Head Coach showing his delight with the senior paddlers work ethic. "We’re now in the final stages of a hard training schedule in preparation for Olympic qualification and only a few weeks to Oceania and the Nationals in in mid-March. Some of the SA contenders are a little sore, but I’m confident all will be ready to put in a good races this weekend."
One of the highlights of the weekend is set to be the battle of SASI star Hannah Davis and QIS paddler, Rachel Lovell, who have recently been training together at a high performance camp in Sydney. The presence of Hannah and Rachel will be great for some of our juniors who have been putting in good performances and showing signs as emerging contenders. Maddy won the U16’s at GP2 in Ballarat just a few weeks ago and josephine finished third.
Good luck to all paddlers and we hope your preparation is rewarded.
