Canoe Athletes Dominate CHS Championships

Four athletes from the Academy’s Canoe-Slalom program competed in the NSW Combined High Schools Canoeing Championships on the Mann River, Grafton last week. Sophie Wilson, Jessica Wilson, Martin Boer-Cueva and Jessica Libreri dominated the events bringing home five gold, three silver and one bronze.┬áThe Mann River is an eight hour drive from Penrith, where the program is facilitated out of Penrith Whitewater Stadium.

This program had its 2018-19 induction just days before these athletes made their way to the Championships, with exciting competitions and events coming up for the athletes.

The athletes in this program will receive technical training on and off the water, education sessions as a part of the Your Local Club Athlete Education Program as well as various personal development opportunities including the opportunity to become a part of the new Academy Ambassador Program.
