Madison has just raced for New Zealand at the 2019 Asia Pacific Kayak Sprint Championships, held at Lake Karapiro, NZ.  Last year they were in Australia and next year they will be in Japan.  They were held from 10-12 May.

To get into the New Zealand Team you need to compete at the NZ Nationals, which are held in February of each year.  From the results at these Nationals, 8 girls and 8 boys from each age group are selected (U16, U18 and U21).  They then go to Lake Karapiro and trial for selection for K2 (2 people) and K4 (4 people) team boats.  You also get to race in K1 if you placed in the Top 3 at Nationals.

Madison raced in the following categories:

K1 U16 200m – Bronze

K2 U16 200m – Bronze

K2 U16 500m – 4th

K4 U16 200m – Gold

K4 U16 500m – Gold

Well done Madison, these are fantastic results - congratulations!
