Paolo Marconi run of Fast paddler on earth Lost Mills

The winning run on the time trial was by Danny Ching

Danny Ching won the 200 metre time trials in just 47 seconds.

Despite the event featuring over a dozen of the world’s fastest guys, Danny crushed the Lost Mills time trial. The 404 front man averaged over 15km/h to stop the clock at 47.60 seconds, almost three seconds ahead of defending champ Connor Baxter (who himself produced what would have probably otherwise been a record).

While there are no official records in this sport, 47.60 seconds is surely the fastest ever 200 metre, flat water sprint time. I’ve never even seen a stand up paddler break 50 seconds before this.

The only caveat is that the “Fastest Paddler On Earth” uses a rolling start (the paddler takes a couple of strokes before passing through the start gate that sets off the clock), whereas most other 200m races use a standing start (the paddler isn’t moving when the clock starts). This definitely gives a slight advantage but how much is unknown (my guess would be 1 second, maybe 2 at most).

Either way it’s a crazy performance and I think the video above highlights it pretty well. Danny Ching is still clearly the man to beat.
