Spanline would like to congratulate Naomi Flood who had an amazing weekend of racing in Perth with victory in the women’s K1 500m at the National Canoe Sprint Championships. She’s now only one step away from representing Australia at the Rio Olympics in August.
Naomi had to race her K2 teammate and close friend Jo Brigden-Jones in the final of the K1 500m event, recording a time of 1:54.77, to claim victory by 0.76 seconds.
Despite her win, Flood acknowledged it was tough racing against such a close friend.
“To race against Jo, she is my K2 partner, she is my friend, she is my training buddy and it was always guaranteed that she was going to Europe but for me that was my final last ditch effort domestically and I am stoked.”
The battle to determine who will secure the third and final place in the women’s Olympic team will now be decided at the first canoe sprint World Cup in Duisbur, Germany in May.
Between now and then Flood plans to work on all aspects of her paddling and said her Olympics will be in May, not in August.
