African Champs Race Report
K1 1000 All African Games

All Africa Games took place in Mozambique, at the same time took also place the first of the 5 Continental Qualifiers for London 2012

Nelo donated 20 boats, and got them all the way down to Mozambique, in an always complex logisitcal operation, but after reading the reports from athletes and officials, it’s all worthy!

As for the Continental Qualifier we are also proud to say that all the 7 berths in dispute were won in Nelo boats and by Nelo fans !

Tunisia and South Africa proved they are the strongest nations in the Continent, with a special note to Tunisia that reached the A final in the K1 500 in Szeged already. Also great pleasure for us to see Manuel Ramos ( Nelo ) country of birth Angola again in the Olympics.

Well done to all!
