Project 2: Uganda Freestyle kayak team - World Championships 2017

The Hendri Coetzee Trust (HCT) is sponsoring an athlete of the Uganda Freestyle Kayak Team for the coming 2017 ICF (International Canoe Federation) Freestyle Kayak World Championship which is being held in San Juan, Argentina.

The current athlete names: Amina Tayona, David Egesa, Sadat Kawawa, and Yusuf Basalirwa, but the final squad is still to be finalised depending on if enough money can be raised to send them all. The competition is being held on a river feature called a ‘hole’. Competitors will perform various tricks within a time limit in order to score points. The tricks require tremendous boat control, athleticism, practice, and body awareness. They have been practicing hard even though they all work on the river full-time.

Sadat is currently a safety kayaker in Iceland for Viking Rafting. Yusuf is a video boater for NRE and an instructor for Kayak the Nile. David Egesa is the head guide for Kayak the Nile and Amina is a safety kayaker for Nalubale Rafting in Uganda.

The event is from November 28 to December 2 and consists of preliminary heats and then progressively smaller rounds until the final paddlers compete for the championship.

In 2015 the Championship was held on the Ottawa River in Canada. After difficulties getting their travel visas to enter Canada they were allowed to enter the country and they quickly became crowd favourites. Amina, Sadat, David, and Yusuf hope to improve upon their results from 2015.

The HCT is very excited to be part of this initiative as we know Hendri felt passionate about helping to develop people to reach their dreams.
