Kayakers race well in worlds Three members of the Mana Kayak Racing Club excelled at the Canoe World Marathon Championships in Singapore. Glen Muirhead, Dougie Wilkins and Marianne Archer had trained together as part of the club's high performance team and were rewarded with some outstanding results at the world championships, said coach Mark Watson. Marathon kayaking involves distance racing over about 32km, seven 4.7km laps. At the end of each lap the kayakers must get out of their kayaks and run a short distance (150m), called a portage, before getting back into their kayaks to complete the next lap. The world championships were held over October 22-23. Muirhead won a bronze medal in the Masters (40 to 44 years) age group, a remarkable performance from Glen considering that he could not even paddle a K1 racing kayak three years ago'', said Watson. Marathon kayak racing is a long term development sport and to think that Glen has got to this stage in his develop- ment in just three years is quite outstanding.'' Archer competed in the open women's division and fin- ished in 16th place. A sprint paddler with sights on the 2012 London Olympics in the K1 500m and K2 500m events, she is used to a considerably shorter distance than the 23km she raced over at the marathon champs. Wilkins, who was Mana's third representative, competed in the U23 men's division and finished 12th. This was his first major international event. The Mana Kayak Racing Club is looking forward to the summer season of racing ahead with a number of members training for The Coast to Coast, and junior paddlers at the NZ Canoe Sprint Championships in February.

Lynch will go to Malta Malta bound: Plimmerton's Susannah Lynch was confirmed last week as the region's best multi-sport athlete and will represent New Zealand overseas in cross- country next year. All on after email hiccup By KRIS DANDO A bungled email exchange meant Susannah Lynch wasn't even aware she would represent New Zealand at the world secondary school cross- country championships in Malta until just two weeks ago. The Plimmerton 15-year-old recently took away the College Sport Wellington multi-sport athlete of the year award after an excellent season, where she dominated the code in her age group. She follows in the footsteps of her sister Deborah, a two-time winner of the multi-sport award. Also an accomplished runner with Olympic Harriers, Lynch was satisfied with being named a reserve for the New Zealand team to Malta, announced earlier this year. But unreceived emails, confirming her elevation to the starting team, had New Zealand officials wondering why her family had not paid a deposit for the trip on time. We got a call and then it was like uh oh', we realised they had the wrong email address. I didn't expect it [making the team] because they normally take older runners,'' she said. Twelve individuals and two school teams -- Rangi Ruru and New Ply- mouth Boys' High -- will go to Malta in March. Used to cold and wet con- ditions here, the Mediterranean island, in spring time, could take some getting used to. I think the ground could be hard, I'm not really sure what to expect. It will be awesome.'' Although running has always been the strongest discipline for her in multi-sport, often blasting past flag- ging opponents on the run leg, Lynch will be doing plenty of training and racing in the coming weeks to bring her up to speed for Malta.
