The good luck sign on the canoe clubhouse in Stone

Please get behind Stone’s London 2012 hopeful Lizzie Neave by posting your good luck message here.

Lizzie Neave

Lizzie – who goes for gold next week in the women’s kayak single – is a member of Stafford and Stone Canoe Club, where her dad Andy coached her from a young age. A brilliant ‘good luck’ sign can be seen at the clubhouse in Stone next to the River Trent in Westbridge Park and you can send her your own good luck message here.

When she made the Team GB team earlier this year, Lizzie was grateful for the support from her home town. She said: “It’s been fantastic to hear about all the support and good wishes from people in Stone. It’s where I first started the sport and a lot of my family and friends are in the town. My dad is just ecstatic. He still coaches at the club in Stone and he’s so happy that a member will be at the Olympics this year. The fact I’m his daughter just makes it much more special.”

The qualification round in the women’s kayak single is on Monday 30th July, starting at 2.20pm, with the semi-final and final on Thursday 2nd August – 2.10pm and 4pm respectively.
