Reynolds proves dominance at Oceania canoe sprint Championships

VIS full scholarship holder and reigning KL3 world champion, Amanda Reynolds has taken a step closer to gaining a place on the Australian Paralympic team after producing a dominant performance at the Canoe Sprint Oceania Championships in Adelaide over the weekend.

Reynolds stopped the clock at 52.70 to finish 4.07 seconds ahead of Susan Seipel who won the KL2 classification in 56.77.

“It was a bit messy but I got off the start really well which was good as that is something we have been working on,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds admitted there was still room for improvement, but signs are good leading into the second selection trial at the National Sprint Championships in Perth from 2-6 March.

“I have a new boat so it is just about getting used to the boat again, and building up strength and working hard to make sure that we are priming at Nationals and then off to Rio in September.”

This week for the first time in almost a year I had a speaking gig, in person, face to face. In the last year I have done a number of gigs but because of Covid-19 they have all be virtual. That’s okay but it certainly isn’t the same as being face to face with your audience. To be able to gage their body language, their facial expressions, or how much you have them interested in your story is so much easier when you are in the same room and not looking at them on a screen.
