My name is Etienne Stott, I am 31 years old and world ranked 6th in Mens Canoe Slalom Doubles for 2011. My best result is 3rd at the European Champonships in front of a home crowd in 2009 and 4th in the World Championhips in 2009. I have won a major international medal every year since 2007. I am the reigning UK Champion and British National ranking champion. I train two or three times a day, six days a week and spend up to twenty weeks abroad on training and racing camps. This regime is demanding, but necessary to compete with the best in the world. I love canoe slalom, I have dedicated all of my life since I was 16 years old to reaching my goals. London 2012 is on the horizon and it is undoubtedly the once in a lifetime chance that any athlete dreams of. There is much hard work to be done and many hurdles to be negotiated, but I am dedicated to my goal. If you would like to support me, then it will be gratefully appreciated - my mission will be a little bit easier as a result. Many thanks!
