Aussie competitor Robert MyIntrye had a good race. He has the longest journey behind , we could interview him after his races. 

Robert MyIntrye has the longest journey behind , we could interview him after his races.
MS: How do you think about the course for White water downhill Sprint and do you  like the short distance in Augsburg?
RMC: Very good, the 300 meter range is a good preparation for the upcoming World Championships in Valtellina, where the competition course  will be even slightly shorter, the course in Augsburg at olympic channel is a great fun to me. It is very tricky, because the water is pumping often different and quickly you miss the perfect racing line, which takes time. The present short routes, everything becomes more interesting. The third place as a result is a great thing. Tomorrow  Robert willl start again, he starts at the national qualifying with two heats and final in each category and the Germans have after the races  their tickets for the World Championships 2014 or not.

 

MS: Did you have  wild water Sprint competitions in Australia actually already on the Olympic course in Penrith?
RMC: There are mainly slalom competitions and extended rafting competitions, for wild water Sprint there is still no international competition on the Olympic track in Penrith offered

The both Netherland competitors Raf van Rijswick had no luck in finals, they miss the ideal line at the course, Raf was at the end 14th and Sebastian Verhaagh had problems with his footrest and scars after he had passed the “Bogenbrücke” close to passing a capsize and leaving disappointed. But at the beginning of the race we had a interview with both: Wwe were there in 2011 at first White Water Sprint Championsship and we remember the longer distance with 600 meters, we like it to have a longer distance but the course at Augsburg is beautiful and we are happy to be here, we’ll do our best.”

ICF Wildwater Sprint Ranking Race in Augsburg was hosted by Kanu Schwaben Augsburg through the leader of the club Horst Woppowa and his experienced team they made a good job and important . they have  a really  interesting venue and the athletes from all over the world loves the course, the venue and the surrounding, not only in canoe slalom discipline, although in whitewater sprint.
