How does being a CAN Fund recipient make a difference for you?
In sprint kayaking winning or losing a race can come down to 0.1 seconds in an 80 second race. In training like in competition it is the extra 1% that makes a huge difference. CAN fund enables me to afford the extra 1%. That’s better nutrition, equipment and sports analysis. On my journey to the Games where everybody is putting in 110% this is vital.
