Kayaker Polly Green goes for gold

Today is the first day of the World Freestyle Kayak Championships. This week is dedicated to the crazy women who run rivers, and love the white water.

First up is American-born, New Zealand-based kayaker Polly Green. Green, a former pro-kayaker retired at 35 to become a film-maker without having achieved her dream of being World Champion; she came 5th in 2003. Last year, she decided it was time to recover her 'Fire Within' and set out training again and documenting the whole journey. Brave woman.

Green's blog has more information, including on her training time with Dr Jessie Stone, who I posted on here.
