Lake boy heads for Rome
Nelson Mandela Bay’s Jordan Zeelie has been selected to represent South Africa at the World Canoe Marathon Championships in Rome next month after winning the South African U18 Marathon Championships. Zeelie, who uses North End Lake for his training will compete in both the K1 and K2 events at the World Championships. As with most sports, international selection comes with the penalty of having to raise enormous funds to support such an honour. Anyone willing to assist with sponsorship is asked to contact Jordan on email@example.com.
