Why Ottilie Loves Kayaking: I love how kayaking has allowed me to travel and explore places that most people wouldn't see and paddle with the friendliest community possible from Canada’s remote NorthWest Terratories to Argentina and Chile with most of Europe in between. I will never forget the opportunites I had as a relative beginner to paddle with champions such as Claire O’Hara and Stephen Wright and hope I can be so giving with my time in the years ahead. 

I also love the battle of competition, the highs and the lows, the mental and physical challenge and the focus it gives to my training and motivation to be the best I can.


What next.   Training hard over winter for my first senior year in 2020 with European Championships in October but before that Colorado tour followed by World Cups in Poland, Sort and Nottingham plus the amazing Natural Games in Millau.
