Florence set for World bid

Edinburgh’s Olympic canoe silver medallist David Florence is all set for next week’s World Slalom Championships in Bratislava, writes LORIN McDOUGALL.

He has spent much of the summer practising on the Worlds course in Slovakia and won the World Cup C1 title in Tacen, Slovenia in late June.

“I’m in good shape,” he said today “I’m having my last few training sessions here in Bratislava and looking forward to the racing.”
