Celebrating Sixth Form Life – by Madeline Dawson (L6)

I have been kayaking for many years now. I am currently training 9 times a week (4x kayaking, 2x swimming, 3x crossfit) and I have been competing nationally. This includes coming 6th in k2 (2 people boat) 2023 national marathon championships. I also won a range of medals from national sprint regattas last summer. I am part of the GB junior development squad, which includes a camp in the summer (I attended in Norwich this summer with around 20 other athletes) and a range of training days throughout the year.
