David Florence wins Silver at Prague World Cup

Congratulations to our sponsored canoe slalom athlete David Florence who won a silver medal in the C1 (canoe singles) at the World Cup at Prague on Saturday 21 June 2014. 

David ran the course in the fastest time in the semi-final so was last to run the course in the final on the same day. He picked up a two second penalty by brushing a gate and missed out on the gold medal position by 1.87 seconds. 

Speaking to us about the World Cup in Prague David said: "It's great to get a medal at any competition during the year as it really helps with confidence going into the next one. I know I am paddling fast but with such small margins for error you can go from first to last in a final very quickly."

David now has a small break from competitions with the next World Cup taking place in La Seu, Spain from the 8 – 10 August. During this time he will training intensively and will spend two weeks in the USA training at the 2014 World Championships venue.
