Locals shine in Kayak n Run
- Written by arounddb
Congratulations to DB residents Kurt Lynn and Thorsten Bruce, whose Gatorade SportsWorld team finished second overall in the recent Royale International Kayak n Run race in Discovery Bay.
Kurt and Thorsten finished the race in 1 hour 29 minutes 57 seconds, just over five minutes behind winners Thomas Lam and Tsang Tsun Kit of team 2XU x Salomon.
“Thorsten and I both live in Discovery Bay so it's super convenient for both of us,” Kurt says. “Since we live very close by, we did a short training on Thursday morning in order to perform at our best today. We planned to take the lead at the beginning of the race and keep it to the very end, but team 2XU x Salomon was incredibly fast on the trail.”
Kurt topped off a big day by teaming up with son Taiki to take out the family fun event in a time of 27 minutes 43 seconds. “I enjoy playing sports with my dad so much,” Taiki says. “Today's course was longer than the last one in Deep Water Bay, but I think races with longer distance favoured us, as I can have more fun together with my dad.”
