A South African paddler living a dream…

Ready to Rock!

I have been in Hungary now for about 2 weeks, completing my final preparations for World Champs in a little town called Szolnok. I have spent most of my pre world champs training camps here over the last few years so I feel very comfortable here and I always get to do a good quality of training here. So far, this year has been no different.
Mike and I have had a great 2 weeks of training. Our k2 is going really well, we are both healthy and strong so now its just to put the last 3 years of preparations into play when we line up next weekend in Szeged for the World Championships and the Olympic Qualifications. This race is by far the most important race for us as a k2 combination so while the pressure is on, we both feel as if we are in the best shapes of our lives and we are paddling faster than ever, so were are excited to get into the racing and see what we can do.
I am super excited to race in Szeged. Not only will the atmosphere be unreal, with thousands of spectators lining the side of the race coarse, my wife will be in town to watch me race internationally for the first time. Alongside my wonderful wife will be my parents, my brother and sister in law, my in laws and 3 of my mates from back home so it is going to be a great weekend with lots of proudly SA support.
The pic below is of Mike and I doing a time trial in our new Vanquish Quatro. Nelo have designed such a spectacular boat. Just when you think it cant get better, Nelo come up with the goods. I am proud to be associated with such a great team.
