2021 Award Winner – Senior (50+) Paddler of the Year

From young of age to young at heart…..

The 2020/21 PNSW Senior (50+) Paddler of the Year is KAREN HADJINICOLA

Karen has been a consistent entrant and supporter of the PNSW Marathon events last year and again this year, entering every event since we returned to competitive paddling in 2020.

Currently leading female paddler in Division 6 (2021). Not only are competitive results inspiring, just as importantly Karen brings a big personality to each event. She is a friendly, outgoing, good-natured individual who clearly enjoys her paddling. Extremely well liked and respected by her fellow competitors. Karen is a consistent performer who has shown continued improvement over the last year in particular.

PaddleNSW is delighted to recognise Karen’s exploits on and off the water.
