After missing out last year, our workmate Danielle Currie and her K4, 500-metre team have won a place in the top-10, under-23, fastest canoe-racing teams at this year’s World Champs in Portugal.

The kiwi team missed out on a placing at last year’s World Champs by just a second, but hard work, grit and determination this year paid off with their placing of ninth overall.

Danielle is delighted: “What an end to our campaign. Ending up 9th in the world…after a great race with the girls – thanks for everyone’s support!”

Danielle sends thanks again to all those who helped her get to this year’s World Champs:

The Junior and U23 World Champs was in Lisbon, Portugal this year from 23 to 26 July.

Cantabrian Danielle competed with team mates Kim Thompson, Briar McLeely and Rebecca Cole in theU23 K4 500 race as well as competing in the U23 K1 500.
