Youngster Josephine Bulmer is headed to the 2018 ICF Sprint World Championships in Portugal.
The 21-year old made her first ever senior final in C1 200, which is set to debut at Tokyo 2020.
The Olympics is on the mind of Bulmer after her impressive C1 200 performance, finishing seventh in her first ever A-final on the Senior sprint circuit.
“I’m still fairly new to this and I hopefully will keep going up and up, but every time I get a PB it’s pretty exciting,” Bulmer told Canoe Australia.
“I’ve knocked a few seconds off on last year and am excited to see where I’m at this year and I’m definitely feeling more confident after the two World Cups.
"It’s a massive learning experience and it’s good to have a lot of the older athletes around to get advice from," she said.
Fellow Australian Kat McArthur won her first Senior international medal at the ICF Sprint World Cup in Duisburg in the K1 1000m and will also be in the squad.
