Lisa Carrington began paddling in 2006 to improve her skills as a surf lifesaver. Five years later, she was crowned the women’s kayak single (K1) 200-meter champion at the 2011 World Championships – and has not stopped since. Carrington won gold in the women's K1 200m events at the 2012 London Games and 2013, 2014 and 2015 World Championships.
