Former students claims title with Olympic and World Champion Lisa Carrington

Former student Kayla Imre had a weekend to remember at the  New Zealand canoe sprint championships. Kayla paired with World and Olympic Champion Lisa Carrington to win the K2 200m and 500m events. According to a NZ Herald article it was actually Carrington who asked Kayla to partner her!

“We were training at the lake recently and she came up and asked me if I had a paddler and if I wanted to put a K2 boat in together,” said Imrie, who competes for the North Shore club.

“I was kind of shocked but pretty excited at the same time. It was awesome to jump in a boat with her and to paddle with an Olympic gold medallist.”
