134 days out from the start of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, Dylan Littlehales has provisionally locked in their Tokyo 2020 spot on the second day of racing at the 2020 Paddle Australia Canoe Sprint Championships.
NSW Institute of Sport kayaker Dylan Littlehales has shown strong improvement over the last four years and is looking forward to putting it all into action at his second Paralympic Games.
“I feel great, it was a good race out there, a good bunch of athletes and it’s good to know that I have got that spot secured provisionally. So it’s forward to Tokyo,” Littlehales said.
“The next goals is going to beat Serhii Yemelianov (UKR), the world champion, and hopefully I can bring home gold in Tokyo but that is still six month away so we are just going to keep working at NSWIS until then and keep the grind going,” Littlehales added confidently.
Australia secured all four Paralympic quota at last year’s ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships and following the conclusion of the Paralympic trials, Paddle Australia will nominate athletes to Paralympics Australia for selection for Tokyo 2020 with teams expected to be finalised over the next couple of weeks.
