Tye takes on Rome Champs
28 September 2012
University of Surrey sports scholar Jonny Tye hit the ICF Canoe Kayak Marathon World Championships in Rome last weekend, taking an impressive 14th place.
Tye, in his first senior year in the sport, qualified with partner Stuart West for the K2 event after topping the results list at the National Marathon Championships in Norwich in August.
The paddling pair took on the world’s best in Rome along with fellow GB pair Jonathan Simmons and Ben Farrell and finished in a respectable 14th place in a field of 32 starters.
