Scots Old Boy, Murray Stewart (Old Boy 2004) completely dominated the Olympic selection trials earlier in 2012 to clinch selection to the Australian Olympic Kayaking Team.
Murray won the battle in the Men’s K1 200m, K1 1000m, K2 1000m and K4 1000m to give himself the best possible opportunity for glory in London. While it is unlikely Stewart will compete in all disciplines in London, his form has put him on the radar of all competitors worldwide.
Murray is a New South Wales Institute of Sport and Australian Institute of Sport Scholarship holder. Murray was also recently awarded a Master of Architecture at the University of Sydney.
Scots to the fore!
