Brodie’s dream run to Paris

WA Champ one step away from Olympic selection.

WA’s own Brodie Crawford has provisionally qualified for a men’s canoe quota for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games after placing second in the Men’s Canoe final at the Canoe Oceania Championships over the weekend.

“It was high pressure but it felt good. I had a really good semi final but one move cost me a lot of time. I did that move a little bit better (in the final) and the run was solid,” Crawford said.

“I have worked really, really hard over the last six months, I have left no stone unturned, but I pushed myself.

“So when you get on the start line you just think I have done it all, I am prepared there is nothing to worry about, and that gives you confidence,” he said.

Crawford said he’s loved welcoming paddlers from across the world to Penrith, and racing against the world’s best.

“When we go to their home ground it is a lot harder and when they come here it shows the quality of paddlers we have here,” Crawford said.

“We have world champs here next year, so it shows how quick we can be,” he said.

Olympic selections will be finalised following the 2024 Canoe Slalom Australian Open in Penrith NSW on 2 – 4 February.

We’re sure you will join us in sending our proud West Aussie support over to him.

⭐⭐⭐ Good Luck next week Brodie! ⭐ ⭐⭐
