Canoeing: Paul Ratcliffe named GB head coach


Olympic silver medallist Paul Ratcliffe has been appointed Britain’s canoeing slalom podium head coach. The 39-year-old, who won silver in the K1 class in Sydney in 2000, has been a GB Canoeing coach since 2004.

He said: “Having been involved in canoe slalom since I was eight, first working my way up through the ranks as an athlete, then through the different stages as a coach, it is an honour and a privilege to be appointed head coach.”
