Lawrence included in Aussie line-up

OLD Bonalbo canoeist Ros Lawrence has secured a spot on the Australian team and will compete at the World Championships.

Lawrence, now based in Penrith, won two K1 races at the Bradys Lake selection event in Tasmania at the weekend.

Lawrence also came fourth in the final of the C1 event.

"I was really happy with my runs in the K1 so regardless of the results it was a good weekend," Lawrence said.

"The course was a bit easier today and the water was a lot lower.

"It was more manageable to paddle down and do fast race lines instead of just trying to survive.

"I was pretty happy with my run and it's always nice to come out on top so it was a good result for me.

"I'm back into training now and getting ready for an overseas trip (in September)."

It is the third event of the year Lawrence has won after kick-starting 2013 with a win at the Nationals.

Her run on Saturday saw her finish 5.83 seconds ahead of London Olympic silver medallist Jessica Fox.

Yesterday was the final selection event for the senior team this year.

Lawrence secured a spot on the team with her wins on Saturday.

Ros is the last remaining professional from the Lawrence family with older sisters Jacqui and Kate before her.

Jacqui won a silver medal in K1 at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and Kate was the World Cup champion that same year.
