Gutsy Performance From The Kiwis
8 August 2012
The Kiwi Men’s K2 crew of Steven Ferguson and Darryl Fitzgerald showed outstanding form and a gutsy performance in the final of the K2 1000m today. The pair had a good start and settled into their rhythm from the outset.
Darryl says “We felt really strong from the first stroke and established a good tempo. We held our position down the course and by the 250m we were really killing ourselves. We worked hard to control our race and really feel we raced the best race we could!” Their time of 3:12.117 is a personal best and their staggering burst of speed at the end gave them a New Zealand record. “The support from back home has been just incredible. We’ve had so many great messages and are really grateful for the way everyone has encouraged us.”
Canoe Racing NZ’s High Performance Manager Grant Restall remarks “Our team here in London has been fantastically supportive of each other and the atmosphere here is positive and vibrant. We’re proud of the boys efforts today and are looking forward to the girls racing tomorrow.”
