I am Freddie Brown and I received funding from “Doing it for Dan” last year and would like to update you on how my past couple of months have gone since my power point at the charity ball.

Recently I have competed at the white Water Racing English Open where I came first in U18s and third overall. Over February half term I then went away on a sprint training camp in Portugal which was very successful. However, there was a clash between the camp in Portugal and river racing selection for the Europeans so, as I had already paid for the training camp, I had to apply for discretionary selection. Very recently I have been informed I have been selected for the white water racing GB team for the European Championships in Macedonia based on my good result at the English Open.

Thank you,

Freddie Brown
