The tough racing conditions on Saturday produced slower times than Friday’s heats. However, eight Kiwis have fought their way to the B Finals and one the C Final, to be raced on the final day today.
If you’re up around 1:30am, be sure to catch the live streaming of the U23 K2 500m A final – the last race of the regatta. Rebecca Cole and Briar McLeely will be aiming for a top three placing after finishing second in their semifinal. Despite being the biggest team ever sent to the Juniors, they remain the only NZ athletes to qualify for an A final.
