River paddling star, Christie Mackenzie showed impressive form ahead of the ICF Canoe Marathon World Championships winning the SA K1 River Championship title at the recent Standard Bank Liebenbergsvlei Canoe Marathon.

Mackenzie had a tough fight on her hands with fellow marathon star, Jenna Nisbet and the two fought it out right to the line on Saturday, 11 September 2021.

In the end it was the now Johannesburg-based Mackenzie who stuck the victory by just over ten seconds from Nisbet.
