Medals aplenty for EL paddlers at SA Champs

A large contingent of East London paddlers partook and fared well in the South African Marathon and Ski Championships in St Francis Bay last weekend.

Toast of the event was the K2 pairing of Bulla Wood and Bevan Manson in securing Gold in the Veteran's category while Manson further scooped a Silver in the K1 of this category and Wood a further Bronze in the Sub Grand Master K1. Equally impressive were Joshua Fenn (U/23) and Helen Wood (Veterans) where they also secured top honours.

Jordy Fenn (U/18) and Brendon Thompson (Sub Grand Master) won Silver medals while the following paddlers all secured Bronze in their respective categories; Nigel Harvey and Russell Keet (Sub Great Grand Masters K2), Jade Wilson (U/18), Duncan Boyd (Veterans), Liz Russell (Great Grand Master) and Luke Swinney (U/18).

Finishing strong to take the Gold were Bulla Wood and Bevan Manson in the Veterans K2 category at the SA Champs in St. Francis Bay last weekend.
