Young kayakers and canoeists paddled for WebEye Challange Boats

Young competitors of the new kayak-canoe generation, the 4. Kids age group took part two times at 3 events of contest organised by the Hungarian Kayak-Canoe Federation in Sukoró.Fans visiting Lake Velence could keep their fingers for competitors in 2000 metres single of the National Student Olympics as well as in 1000 and 4000 metres single events on the occasion of the Kids, Children and Teen Hungarian Championship. It was a curiosity that - thanks to Lambda-Com and Hódy Sport Ltd. - the single event winners could win „WebEye Challange Boats” thus reviving the tradition of red boats.The best 14-years-old girl kayaker, boy kayaker and canoeist can use these boats for a period of one year.

„The Hungarian Kayak-Canoe sport may be proud of numerous successful competitors, but in order to ensure the future successes we have to think of the junior age groups in due time. This branch of sport is very underfinanced, the boats are considered expensive sports equipments, therefore only few young sportsmen have the opportunity to make good use of their talent.Lambda-Com Ltd has decided to take part in supporting young talents and in reviving the tradition of „Csepel red boats”. 20 years ago each of the best competitors taking part at contests organised by the Hungarian Kayak-Canoe Federation could take home a red boat for a whole year. There was a great interest among young sportsmen: they prepared themselves with great enthusiasm, since it was a great honour for them to possess a red kayak or canoe.” -Anikó Bernáth, communication leader of Lambda-Com Ltd said.

Lambda-Com Ltd. is a fully Hungarian-owned multinational company that provides complex transport informatics services in 14 European countries. As a modern, innovative company, it is aware that over the environmental-conscious character of its services it is responsible for the direct environment as well. Besides, commitment to sport plays an important role in everyday life of company’s employees. Building on these values, Lambda-Com Ltd met with Hódy Sport Ltd which is a nationally and internationally recognised racing boat building company. Thanks to the cooperation between these companies and the partnership of the Hungarian Kayak-Canoe Federation the tradition of red boats has now been revived with the aim of supporting young kayakers. partnerség

„We trust that the honour and the related success will motivate young paddler and winners possessing these state-of–the art sport equipments can continue to increase their performance. We hope that this championship will draw attention to this talented, young generation and „WebEye Challange Boats” will significantly help them to become even World and Olympic Champions of the future. But what is much more important :all this continues to strengthen their adherence to sport and they set an example for their generation as well.” - Anikó Bernáth added.
