Alicia – Kayaking The Asia Pacific Cup 2019

Friend and Client of Assume Its Possible, Alicia Fay, is heading over to New Zealand to represent the country in the Asia Pacific Cup – Kayaking in the event run by CANOE RACING NEW ZEALAND.

Now in its second year, the Asia Pacific Cup will be hosted by New Zealand at stunning Lake Karapiro from 10th – 12th May 2019.   The regatta offers K1, K2, K4 and relay events in 200/500/1000m distances depending on age group, and consists of national junior development paddlers in three age groups: U16, U18, U21.

Off the back of a stellar last year both nationally and internationally, Alicia is looking stronger than ever in her charge during 2019.  The Asia Pacific Cup is a junior development competition between NZ, Australia, Japan and other Asia Pacific nations aimed at giving U21 selected paddlers more international competitive opportunities.  Commencing on Friday 10th, Alicia has a swathe of events to knock out including:

K1 (individual) 500

K2 (duo) 200

K2 (duo) 500

K4 (quad) 500

K4 (quad) 200

K4 (quad) mixed

Quite the event list.
We’re cheering her all the way – her training this year has taken enormous strides.  An incredibly well-rounded athlete, Alicia pushes way above her age (in fact any age), with phenomenal running speeds, body-weight control and strength output.  We’ll also just drop in here that she’s a national level surf life saver competitor to boot.
Being in the Junior Development Squad only highlights how much more potential there is this young athlete as she continues to mature and develop.  From a personal perspective, it has been such a pleasure to see her mindset sharpen, watch her understanding of how to overcome limitations enhance, and see her gain an appreciation of tactics and strategic thinking increase.
It’s heartening to see not just young talent being recognised – but that the talent formulates from such a grounded base.  We will be cheering you every step (paddle) of the way ma’am.  Go get em!
Trainer and Friend – Pete.
