"It was awesome to be able to line up with Lisa - it was just like being at home and I'm really looking forward to the final tomorrow to see how the Kiwi girls can go," a jubilant Fisher said. "Racing K1 has been so much fun. It was a massive experience and I'm also really looking forward to taking all that stuff I've learned into the K4 tomorrow."
