Stars of slalom
TWO Mazenod College students will compete in the Australian National Canoe Kayak Slalom Carnival, which kicks off today.
It comes after Alex Nevin and George Pankhurst performed well at the Australian Canoe Slalom National Championships in Eildon, Victoria, last month.
The three-day event involved competition in C1, C2 and K1 classes. Two-times Olympic medallist Jess Fox was in competition, alongside other big names on the national slalom circuit.
Nevin, of Kalamunda, and Pankhurst, of Sawyers Valley, trained with the WA state squad in Penrith, NSW, ahead of the national carnival.
“It is a great opportunity to show what we can do and it’s going to be really good,” Pankhurst said.
