Johannesburg - South Africa's Olympic canoeing medallist Bridgitte Hartley says she aims to get good results at the final Sprint World Cup in Poland but insists that her main focus is the World Championships later this year.
Hartley finished third in the women's K1 500m final at the London Olympics and became the first South African to bag a canoeing medal at the Games.
"I am going to compete in the K1-events over 500m and 200m," Harley said on Thursday.
"Of course I will aim to get good results, but the World Cup events are not necessarily a good reflection of what might happen later this year at the World Championship.
"I have won an Olympic medal and now I want to get a World Championship medal as well."
She won a bronze medal in the K-1 1000m event at the 2009 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships in Dartmouth.
"It was a definite highlight for me, but I badly want to win a medal in an Olympic discipline, such as the 500m or 200m, at the World Championships."
