The Canadian CanoeKayak Team is heading back home with 23 medals after a successful four day competition in Mexico City. The team won a total of four gold, fourteen silver and five bronze to rank second overall in points at the Pan American Sprint Canoe Championships.

Host nation Mexico won the competition. Canada was second for total medal count and fourth for gold medals of the 16 participating countries. The championships were the qualifiers for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games next year making for a strong level of competition. Canada receives quota spots as the host nation.

Jillian Perrone of Oakville, ON was a double gold medalist. She won the Junior Women’s K1 200 and also paired with Juliette Brault of Pointe-Claire, QC to take the top spot in Junior Women’s C2 500.

“Our athletes consistently raced against world class competitors including a number of medalists from this year’s world championships,” said High Performance Director, Scott Logan. “For many of our junior and senior development team athletes this was a chance to gain international race experience and an opportunity for us to see the depth of our talent pool looking beyond 2016.”
