K1 Kenny takes canoe bronze

A Hawick canoeist has paddled his way to a bronze medal at the British Canoe Marathon Championships on the River Severn in Worcester.

Veteran Kenny Fraser competed in the Masters’ K1 class and came in 35 seconds behind the reigning World Masters champion.

Kenny has been Scottish White Water Champion for a number of years and is a member of the British white water team. He has recently converted to ‘flat water’ racing and trains regularly on the River Teviot and Alemoor Loch. He now plans to contest the World Championships in Hungary next year.
