A WEE COUNTY youngster has set her sights on the Olympics after winning two championships over the course of a single weekend.

Alloa's Hannah Toovey, took the British Kayak Championships this month, then won the Scottish Championships the very next day.

The 11-year-old dominated the 6.5km course – despite windy conditions – at the British event in Norwich on Saturday, August 10.

Not only did she get the gold medal, she managed to finish almost four minutes ahead of the runner up.

And, as if that wasn't enough, she then travelled 300 miles through the night to take part in the Scottish Junior Slalom Championships at Fairnilee, near Galashiels, the next day.

The odds were definitely against her on the Sunday, as she had to battle high river levels as well as the fatigue from her victory just a few hours earlier.

But, incredibly, she walked away as the Scottish Champion in the under 12 age group.

And because her time was so quick, she also took the title in the under 14 girls class as well.

With so much accomplished already, the ambitious youngster spoke about her hopes for the future.

She told the Advertiser: "I'm really happy and really proud of myself that I've won them."

"I want to go to the Olympics at some point, and then for the near future I want to get promoted up as many divisions as possible."

Proud mum Lorna added: "She started racing when she was about six, so she's been doing it for a few years.

"She's won the British title in the past and she's also had various Scottish titles as well."

Focusing on Hannah's most recent results, she said: "I think it's fantastic, because she did really well and she was really happy – but exhausted.

"She's loves [kayaking], and she's very focused and determined and takes it quite seriously."

And, when asked what the future could hold for her daughter, she said: "She's only 11, who knows what will happen."
