On Thursday (August 20, 2009) Boteler competed in
the grueling 1000 meter C-I (one person) sprint canoe
race. She finished first in the time of 5:30.94. The
second place finisher (18-year-old Anna Crawford)
was over 17 seconds behind at 5:48.002.

With Pam's time, she would have finished eighth in the
men's 1000 meter race. The seventh place men's finisher's
time was 5:23, while eighth and ninth place competitors
were each timed in 5:42.
