Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

My dad, Norman MASON (GBR), got me into canoeing, he represented GB at the highest level - at the Montreal 1976 Olympic Games. I didn't enjoy it the first time I tried it but I came back and have loved it ever since. I also started with my brothers which spurred me on to beat them. Not so much fun for them. I always have to wear something pink and I always get my nails done pre-competition.
