Premier Performance from Connor
Sixteen year old Connor Turner has won promotion to the Premier league of Slalom kayaking after gaining fourth place at last weekend’s race at Holme Pierrepoint in Nottingham. Connor a member of Tees Tigers and Tees Active Sports Academy has good reason to be happy with his promotion as he has had to have an enforced break from the water for 9 months and has only competed in 7 Division one races this season.
Fellow Tiger and Academy member Daisy Cooil continued her good form as she finished second in the Women’s K1 race.
A delighted Connor said “ To get promoted to the premier division has been my main goal this season and I am really looking forward to competing in Cardiff in my first Prem race in a couple of weeks’ time. I know the competition is going to be tough but it will be great to be on the water competing against the best paddlers in the country
