Arthur Artukin continues with another stellar performance finishing 3rd overall at the Mercedes SUP World Cup in Germany!
Day one saw him make his way through to the final, inclusive of clawing his way back into the running with a win in the consolation final (the top 2 earning the last 2 stops in the final) after a hectic 2 day road trip to make it up to Scharbeutz. Day 2 saw him then come into his own, as he kept with Michael Booth and his team mate Jake Jensen throughout the race, pushing the final two right up to the finish line to finish in a well deserved 3rd place.
This 3rd place finish propelleled him into 3rd place overall for the event, and as a result, 3rd place overall in the World Rankings after stop 2 of the 2016 World Series. There is no doubt that Arthur is a rising star and is a major threat to watch out for over the coming years.
Jake Jensen did very well as well finishing 6th in the Sprints however in the Long Distance he was unfortunately forced to retire as a result of a broken paddle in a close exchange with friend and fellow Aussie, Michael Booth – really bad luck:-(
Lat but not least well done to our German team competing with Kai-Nicolas Steimer, Paulina Herpel and Thomas Wendt!
