Slalom

Slalom

Canoe Slalom is also an Olympic Discipline in which Great Britain has excelled over the years. At the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, David Florence won a Silver Medal in the K1 Mens event.{!SLALOM}

Friends of Allonby members used to be very involved in Slalom in the 1990s, and for many years the Club ran an excellent Div. 3 Slalom event each season on the River Tryweryn near Bala in North Wales.

However, currently only a few members take part in BCU Slalom events. Slalom Representative, Charlotte Lister, (Prem) is attempting to promote interest again within our Club.

If there is a demand from our members we can easily hang slalom gates in a dedicated section of our Polo and Slalom Facility at Dukes Dock for training purposes.  At Crosby putting up a few gates near the lake water inlet is being investigated which if successful should provide a little moving water through/near the gates.  We have a number of slalom boats in our inventory which can be used for training or borrowed to take part in slalom events.
