Etienne Stott honoured with Bedford white water arena

Help

Olympic gold medallist Etienne Stott has returned to his home town of Bedford to rename a white water arena in his honour.

Thousands of people lined the streets on Saturday as Stott took park in an open-top bus parade with paralympians, Gamesmakers and torchbearers from the borough.

Duckmill Weir has been renamed to recognise Stott's win with partner Tim Bailey in the C2 canoe slalom at the 2012 Olympic Games.
