Carrington Returns Triumphant
20 August 2012
Lisa Carrington, Olympic K1 200m canoe sprint gold medallist, returns to New Zealand via Auckland International Airport
tomorrow (Tuesday 21 August) at 10.50am.
Aged only 23, Lisa showed the world what she’s made of - beating out a host of much more experienced and decorated
paddlers in this event. Her biggest concern Hungarian Natasa Douchev- Janics, four time Olympic medallist with an
impressive 18 World Championship titles, claimed bronze, and Ukaranian Inna Osypenko-Rodonska took the silver.
Lisa is looking forward to her homecoming. “I’ve been away for three months and have been really missing everyone back home. It’s been such an intense experience
but all that hard work has paid off. All those times when I missed out on parties or had to head home early for training
the next morning … it’s all been worth it. I’ve had such wonderful support. I can’t wait to see everyone and share this
