World Cup Series 2015

In June I headed to Europe for the World Cup series to prepare the World Championships in September. We raced 5 World Cup races with each race counting towards the overall World Cup ranking. We started in Prague, Czech Republic for World Cup 1, drove to Krakowi in Poland for World Cup 2, then to Liptovsky in Slovakia for the 3rd World Cup. A short break, some beach time and training and we were back for World Cup 4 in La Seu, in Spain, and just last week found ourselves in the French Pyrenees in Pau for the World Cup Final.

Results: 

Prague World Cup 1
K1: 2nd place
C1: 2nd place

Krakow World Cup 2
K1: 29th... oops!
C1: 1st place

Liptovsky World Cup 3
K1: 9th place
C1: 7th place

Seu World Cup 4
K1: 5th place
C1: 1st place

Pau World Cup 5 
K1: 2nd place
C1: 2nd place

Overall I’m happy with my racing in the World Cup series. In C1 my 2 golds and 2 silvers secured me the overall world cup win. In K1, I had a great 2nd place finish in Pau, which got me an overall 3rd place standing in the World Cup.

Here is a link to my race run.

The world rankings are out and I am super excited to be ranked number 1 in the world in BOTH my events! It’s been a goal of mine for a long time!

It’s now just under a month till the major event of the year – the World Championships. These World Cup results are motivating and I’m already excited race. It is the first step to qualify for the Rio Olympics as we need to finish in the top 15 nations to qualify a quota for Australia to compete next year. This year, the Worlds are held in London, back on the Olympic course! I love this venue – it’s big, challenging water and suits my paddling style. We are currently in London for a training camp and I am loving it (minus the rain, wind and cold)!

Three weeks to go till Team AUS is back on the startline! Stay tuned…
