Duisburg (Germany) — The South African sprint canoeing team preparing for the Beijing Olympics posted its best ever international results at the Duisburg Sprint World Cup in Germany where all the key Olympic hopefuls returned excellent results in their A finals, and Bridgitte Hartley stunned the event with a silver medal in the women’s 1 000 m K1 A final.

“I am so, so happy!” enthused Hartley after the prize-giving ceremony. “I had two new challenges at this World Cup, the K2 with Michelle Eray, and the 1 000 m K1, and to get a silver between two such class paddlers is very exciting!”
