World Championship Medal for Tiger
Zac Allin is returning from the World Junior Slalom Kayaking Championships in Australia with a bronze medal in his luggage after being a member of the 3 man Great Britain team who narrowly finished behind the Czech Republic and Spanish team.
This topped off a great week at the World Championships staged in Penrith, Australia for Zac who at 16 years of age fought through the qualifying round to finish 9th in the final.
Zac a member of the Tees Tigers and Tees Active Sports Academy will be returning home and will be back training hard for the European Junior Championships which will be staged in Skopje, Macedonia in early July.
Tigers coach Darren Cresser said “To return with a team medal and a place in the final is testament to how Zac is progressing in to being one of the most exciting paddlers in the country. His performances at the World Championships were a credit to himself and everybody at the club. I am sure Zac’ s success will only make him more determined for the Europeans and he will be back at Tees Barrage International White Water Centre training hard on his return.”
