Tuesday, April 29, 2014

CanoeKayak Canada is pleased to name 27 athletes to its Senior World Cup Tour Team following the first set of Canadian Sprint CanoeKayak Team Trials on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Georgia.

“The performances we saw at trials over the past three days were very encouraging,” said Scott Logan, CanoeKayak Canada’s High Performance Director. “As we get further into the quadrennial and continue to refine our high performance systems, we’re able to predict benchmarks with more certainty. Thanks to the outstanding work being done by athletes, coaches, support staff and sport partners, we’re progressing confidently towards our 2016 goals. We’re looking forward to heading to Europe to line up against the rest of the World.”

Seven athletes will start the tour in Milan, Italy for the first ICF World Cup this coming weekend. The full Canadian team will arrive in Europe on May 11 for World Cups 2 and 3 in Racice, Czech Republic and Szeged, Hungary.
