Australian Wildwater Team Announced

Paddle Australia is pleased to announce the athletes selected as part of the Australian Wildwater team travelling to the 2024 ICF Wildwater Canoeing World Championships.

Australia’s best Wildwater athletes will take part in the World Championships scheduled for August 14-18 in Sabero, Spain.

Returning athlete Nina Mueller is thrilled to represent Australia for the second year in a row.

“Being selected on the Australian team is a pretty special achievement,” said Mueller.

“I am very grateful for the opportunities kayaking has given me and the places it has taken me. Balancing full time work and training isn’t always easy, but knowing that I get to race internationally makes the busy weeks worth it.”

“I am very excited to travel to Europe again this year. I am hoping to race all six international events of the season and can’t wait to get more experience competing against athletes from around the world.

“It’s also going to be great fun travelling as an Australian team with so many of my fellow Western Australian representatives.”

Having been selected for her very first national Wildwater team in 2023, Mueller is excited to return to the international circuit this year.

“Racing at my first international event for wildwater last year was a very fun experience. The river in Mezzana was technical and challenging, the town was beautiful and the organisation of the event was fantastic. The race gave me the motivation to keep training hard so that I could come back and give it another go this year,” she finished.
