Queensland young guns Alexander Haas and Jake Donaghey have continued on the form that saw their surprise qualification for London last year by winning the national 1000 metres canoe title in Perth.
Their story is legend already. After answering an ad on the school notice board, and then setting their sights on Rio in 2016, the schoolboys shocked everyone by qualifying for last year's Olympics.
They returned home, put the canoe in the shed, and finished their studies. In fact they only took the canoe out again at the end of January.
Despite the limited preparation Hass and Donaghey had little trouble nabbing the national title.
"To be honest I'm quite surprised," Donaghey said.
" For two months work we're paddling quite well, so we're looking forward to a big year of training."
The boys have decided not to head overseas to compete this year, opting instead for a solid year-long training campaign at home.
"Rio is the ultimate goal, and the process of looking towards Rio has already started," Donaghey said.
While last year the pair had to juggle training and competing with their year 12 studies, this year the pair are juggling university.
"We've structured our timetables around out training needs," Haas said.
"It's been a lot better. We can totally commit ourselves to the sport."
The boys are thinking ahead, already talking about deferring their studies in 2015/16 to focus on their Olympic preparations.
