Championship Joy for Zac
Zac Allin topped off a fantastic 2014 season in the final race of the year at the British Slalom Championships staged on the 2012 Olympic course at Lee Valley White Water Centre by being crowned British Junior Champion.
16 year old Zac who is a member of the Tees Tigers Club and Tees Active Sports Academy has had a tremendous 2014.Zac in the summer had returned from the Junior World Championships in Australia where he finished 9th in the K1 individual event and was part of the 3 man Great Britain team who won bronze in the K1 team event.
A delighted Zac said “I am very pleased to finish the season with a success, taking the title of British Junior champion, I have had a good year making the finals in the Junior World championships and topping the year off with this result is great. Over the winter I have many training camps on the London Olympic course as this is also the venue for British junior Selection next year in which I hope to be selected. Next year the junior worlds are in Brazil and it would be a honour to represent GB again in Brazil if I manage to make the Junior GB team again”
Zac’s coach Darren Cresser added “Zac has worked very hard for his success throughout the year. But I am sure he will be even more determined to work hard on and off the water through the winter months so he can return for the 2015 season as an even stronger paddler.”
