Day Two Euro Rafting Champs

H2H w GBRThe second day of competition was the Open Sprint and H2H. As I expected it was spectacular in both disciplines.

First it was the Sprint where the CZE1 team defended their title from last time, NED1 achieved a fantastic result and climbed onto the podium at 2nd place, while the experienced Italian ITA1 took third place.

In the women’s category the title was not defended and the result was as follows: SVK 1 first, NED 1 – an excellent result – second, GBR 2 took third.

Men H2HH2H gave us more of a fight than we saw the previous day. The most interesting race was the struggle between GBR1 and TUR1 teams who exchanged places during the whole run. An extreme effort right at the end on the flat water saw GBR1 take the win.
