Canoeing and Kayaking
« on: October 31, 2006, 07:49:47 AM »
A young Co. Antrim woman, Hannah Craig, who is based in Dublin and is a member of the Salmon Leap Canoe Club, Leixlip, Co. Kildare plans to go for Gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics as well as the 2112 London Olympics in the sport of Kayaking. Hannah has been involved with this sport since 1992. She would like to hear from anyone interested in sponsoring her .. whether it is an item of equipment so she can continue participating in her sport or a cash donation is not important .. Hannah told Ruth Gorman of the Sunday Life that any support in any form which would assist her in achieving her dreams of winning the Gold medal would be greatly appreciated and honoured. Her main backers are the Irish Canoe Union and the Irish Sports Council who provide high quality coaching, support in international competitions and training camps.

There's a long list of items that would help Hannah. These include boats, canoeing gear, funding for a training partner, general living expenses, gym equipment, paddles and performance enhancing equipment such as a laptop, video and split screen software.

Kayaking was the fourth most watched event during the first week of he 2004 Olympics. The events in which Hannah competed this year received both national and international television coverage.
