Washburn Win for Triumphant Teasdale
Paddlers from Tees Tigers are celebrating after another successful weekend whilst competing at the UK Slalom Division 1 competition at Washburn in North Yorkshire.
16 year old Ben Teasdale (below) had particular reason to celebrate after he won his K1 race on Saturday which secured his promotion to the sports Premier Division. After an interrupted season Connor Turner showed he was back to near his best form with a third and fifth place in the races on Saturday and Sunday. This will hopefully motivate Connor to make a late push for promotion in the remaining races of the 2014 season.
Zac Allin continues his tremendous 2014 form by winning the C1 races on Saturday and Sunday which secured him promotion to the C1 Premier league and he will now be competing in both the K1 and C1 Premier divisions.
Daisy Cooil continued her fine form in her first year in Division 1 as she finished 9th on Saturday and 5th in Sundays race and will no doubt challenging for even higher finishes in the not to distant future.
All the paddlers who are members of Tees Active Sports Academy will be looking for future successes throughout August and will be particularly looking to make home course advantage count when they compete at the Tees Barrage International white Water Centre meet in September.
