Huish student selected to represent Great Britain in World and European Championships

Richard Huish College student Katie Shattock has been selected to represent Great Britain as part of the canoe and kayak white water junior slalom teams for the World and European Junior Championships this year.

The former Castle School student has been relishing the opportunity to represent Great Britain and now will have the opportunity to do just that. To get selected it was a hard-fought journey in which Katie had to be in the top three of her age group and meet a strict percentage time of the professional athletes.

But after three full days of tough competition, Katie successfully achieved percentages and was awarded first in kayak and third in canoeing. Later that week she received confirmation, from British Canoeing, that she was selected for the Junior GB team for kayaking, canoeing, and extreme slalom and will now spend the summer training in Italy before she competes in the European and World Championships.

Along with competing in the World and European Junior Championships, the England Futures programme has invited Katie to meet the athletes and their support network at the Commonwealth Games.
