Today in Penrith (Sydney) there was the 2009 Australian Open of Canoeing.
I went there to see my friend Daniele Molmenti in his sport performance. Once again he proved to be a strong athlete, a champion, arriving first in the semifinal as well as in the final of this international competition.
It is the first time I’ve seen him live since the TV broadcast of the Beijing 2008 Olympic games.
I can say that I felt excitement and also a bit of pressure watching his race. Yes it was really cool to follow his achievements also for just one day, running around with my camera, trying to get the right shot for him.
In this post, just below, you can see as well some of my pictures of today’s race!
