Athletes race nearly 13 miles in paddle-boarding competition

Sunday, April 28th, 2013

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Contestants from nearly 40 states and 5 nations paddled in the Carolina Cup this weekend at Wrightsville Beach.

The paddle-boarding competition began near the Blockade Runner where even pro’s hit the water. Athletes raced up to 13 miles around Wrightsville Beach waters. They fought waves and currents, but are among the toughest paddlers in the world.

One contestant says you don’t only have to be an elite to join the competition. You also have to be a little crazy.

“You look at the conditions. It definitely is not just a Sunday stroll,” said Key West’s Trish Miller. “It is an internal practice. You are out there and many things go through your mind. It is kind of like those cross country runners. You just get into your groove.”

Danny Ching of California came in first place for the Men’s competition. United Kingdom’s Annabel Anderson took home the gold for the Women’s competition. Anderson is also the Women’s world champion.
