By purchasing a delicious Cooper’s Family Pie or a specially labelled quality bottle of Rich Glen Olive Oil you will be assisting local kayaking sensations Kayla Whinray and Brea Roadley in their efforts to compete in the 2014 ICF World Marathon Canoe Championships to be held in Oklahoma City, USA in September 26-28.August 5, 2014 4:10pm
Brea and Kayla are responsible for their own accommodation, travel, nutrition and transport of equipment but to help with this a portion of the cost of a family pie and a bottle of olive oil will be used to assist the girls.
Kayla, a year 12 student at Yarrawonga College P-12, will compete in the Junior K1 Class at her second World Championships after competing in Denmark last year.
Brea, a first year student at Footscray Campus of Victorian University, will compete in her first World Championship in the Open Women K2 with her partner Tess Watson from Western Australia.
While most of us have been complaining about the winter’s cold mornings and bleak evenings Kayla and Brea have continued their vigorous training programs paddling up to 200km per week.
Both Kayla and Brea first began kayaking at the Yarrawonga Mulwala Amateur Canoe Club as 14 year olds and have since thrived in the sport competing and breaking records along the way.
President of the local canoe club Jared Loughnan said the girl’s progression in the sport was simply “outstanding”.
“To have two of the five females representing Australia from our very small club with limited facilities is amazing and has made us very proud,” Jared said.
“Both girls have worked incredibly hard to get to the top of their sport in Australia. It’s a credit to their families, coaches and training partners.
“This is definitely a first for our club to have two Australian representatives going to same world championships and I would imagine it would be a first for any sporting club in Yarrawonga Mulwala,” he said.
The olive oil bottles and pie order forms are available at the Yarrawonga Chronicle, Karana Nursing Home or the Yarrawonga Mulwala Tourist Centre. The olive oil bottles are priced at the RRP $15.00 per bottle or a multi buy price of two for $25.00. The family pies are $25 each and can also be ordered online at www.cooperspies.com.au but enter the promo code; fundraiser - to support the girls.
