by | Jun 26, 2022

Pippa McGregor and partner Jenna Nisbet grabbed gold after a nail-biting finish at the South African Canoe Marathon Championships at Hazelmere Dam on Saturday, 25 June 2022.

McGregor partnered with Nisbet, swapping out Olympian medallist Bridgitte Hartley with whom she took bronze in this year’s Dusi Canoe Marathon.

Throughout the 26.6km race, the pair engaged in a tough battle with Tannah Smith and Jade Wilson, but held on to win only by a second in a time of 2:05.16.

“It was really tough over the first few laps, but eventually it came down to the two boats at the front,” said McGregor after the race.

“We are really happy to come away with the win. Jenna is an absolute master of marathon events, so it was a privilege to paddle behind her.
