2014 ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup held at Lee Valley White Water Centre. Purpose built for the 2012 London Olympics and its still a world class venue.
2014 ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup was held over 6th, 7th and 8th of June 2014. I was there for the final day to cover the womans K1 kayak finals and the men’s C2 canoe doubles.
Canoeing is such a dynamic sport to cover. Where you can get close to the action even as a spectator. So its all about capturing the athletes expressions and the action. Just what I like!
I posted another image of Jessica on Facebook here
I did witness a moment of history. Lu Li the first Chinese canoeist to win a major world canoe title.
And so onto the Mens C2 Doubles. Often referred to as the most exciting class in canoeing. With plenty of British interest with no less than 3 teams in the final.
But it was the Slovakian pairing of Luka Bozic and Saso Taljat that came out ontop.
So I really enjoyed the day and especially the sport. All my images are syndicated by SportPix so please take a look.
