French slalom canoeist Nouria Newman competed internationally from 2007 to 2015. She won two medals at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championship, Gold in 2014 and Silver in 2013. She has remained true to the canoeing sport – but you might say that her tours are becoming more and more unusual each time.

Nouria Newman gained fame thanks to her solo kayak expedition in 2018 which was sponsored by Red Bull. She paddled down the Tsarap - Zanskar - Indus River in seven days, covering a total distance of 375 kilometers. According to her, she is very lucky to still be alive after getting caught on a rock along the way. She made a thirteen-minute video of the trip which can be seen on YouTube. She was also the first woman to ride down a 100-foot waterfall.
