Follow Tate while he chases his dreams of winning an Olympic Gold Medal for Australia in Flatwater Kayaking at the London Olympic Games. From his background in Surf Ski paddling through Surf Lifesaving, Tate has adapted his skills to the Olympic sport of Flatwater Kayaking, and is now one of the senior members of the National Flatwater Kayak Team.

The team is traveling well. We have a great support team this year, so things are looking good. I will post some results and photos after the World Cups which are in June.

Here's a photo of our K4 training at the course where we're based in Munich. We matched it back to a bit of paddling history. In 1972 when the Olympics were in Munich, 5 time Kayak Olympian Dennis Green stroked his K4 down the same course. Dennis introduced our fourth seat paddler Jake Clear to flatwater paddling. So it's pretty cool to see the old and the new K4s in the same spot, 40 years apart.
