Narrowly beaten for bronze

Umina's Jemma Smith has returned from the 2020 Oceania Canoe Sprint Championships, having narrowly been beaten for bronze medals in two events.

Held from February 12 to 16 at the Sydney International Regatta Centre, Jemma competed for Avoca Kayak Club in the Women's Open and 23-and-Under divisions.

Jemma's first event was the Women's Open K1 500.

She made it to the semi-finals where she placed seventh but did not qualify for the final.

She then competed in the direct final of the Women's 23-and-Under K2 500 event with clubmate Georgia Sinclair, where they were narrowly beaten to the bronze medal by the South Australian pair of Caitlin Webber and Francesca Kidd by less than two seconds.

The pair then competed in the Women's Open k2 500 together and looked to be contenders throughout the heats, never falling outside of a top four position and even placing second in their semi-final but were outclassed in the final by a strong international field and placed eight.

The Jemma-Georgia duo then teamed up with the South Australians that bested them in the Women's 23-and-Under K2 500 for the Women's Open K4 500 and were again narrowly beaten to the bronze by a combined NSW-QLD team.

Jemma ended her run through the championships with an eight in the Women's Open K1 200.
