  • About Eilidh
    Eilidh grew up in a small village in Scotland, where she loved exploring outdoors. Both Eilidh's parents were paddlers, and Eilidh and her brother grew up paddling with their parents. Eilidh took up the sport competitively when she was 13 after she found some friends in the sport and started enjoying winning some races! Eilidh trains at the Lee Valley Whitewater Centre in North London, which was the 2012 Olympic venue.
  • Eilidh's motto
