People often ask me: how can you be friends with your competitors? 🤔😱 It would be a pretty lonely and miserable sport if we couldn’t appreciate our rivals and enjoy ourselves together with our shared passion on and off the water.
There are some incredible people in our sport - from all over the world and I feel so lucky to have friends from across the globe.. sure, it’s business on the startline but there’s always hugs at the finish line! 🙌🏽. I feel proud and happy for them when they produce a great performance or winning run - even when they beat me. I have so much admiration and respect for my friends and competitors. They inspire me, they make me work harder and we bring out the best in each other and lift the sport. 💪🏽. This pic reminds me of the great battles on the water with @ricarda_funk this year! Thank you Rici for this season, it was amazing to share the podium with you, to watch you kick ass (including mine 5 times in a row🙄) and to see your grace and sportsmanship in Pau was touching. See you in 2018 😜
Enjoying the sunshine ☀️ and trying to get moving after long travel days. Run & foam roll 👌🏾the quads, hips and lats are the most painful! 😩
It's good to be home! Back in the bush🌿 & reunited with the Rav❤️
6th place today, hard to swallow.. one of those runs where you want to press rewind and start again ! Congratulations @mallorysfranklin 🥇@fiserka123 🥈& @anasatila_vargas 🥉 - some great racing!
I'll be back tomorrow racing the K1 semi 😊
Merci au public palois et tous les amis et ❤️ers du kayak qui sont venus supporter tous les athlètes et encourager aujourd'hui ! Je voulais remercier les jeunes qui sont venus m'attendre à l'arrivée et m'excuser parce que je n'ai pas pu signer tous les drapeaux/posters/casquettes et prendre tous les selfies ... vous étiez nombreux, l'émotion était encore un peu trop forte et je devais aller récupérer pour ma course de demain. Mais je vous attendrai nombreux demain apres le kayak 😊😘❤️@paucanoe
