Canoeing: Florence keen to seal place

Have your say

Edinburgh canoeist David Florence aims to rubber-stamp his qualification for this summer’s World and European Championships at this weekend’s final selection trials on Lee Valley’s Olympic course.

The double Olympic slalom silver medallist is already guaranteed a place in the C2 doubles, but he also wants to compete in the C1 singles.

Despite a rare defeat to Mark Proctor in Nottingham a fortnight ago, the Forth Canoe Club paddler tops the overall standings going into this weekend’s final two races. “They count your best three results out of four races,” explained Florence.
