Last Olympic spot in CanoeKayak up for grabs at Montreal Trials

Preliminary Draw now posted:

Day 1 (Saturday, June 23) Day 2 (Sunday, June 24)
Last Olympic spot in CanoeKayak up for grabs at Montreal Trials

OTTAWA, ON – CanoeKayak Canada will select its final athlete for nomination to the Canadian Olympic Team as 44 athletes compete for the single spot in Men’s K1 200 at the second set of Sprint Team Trials this weekend. Heats, semis and a final will take place on Saturday and the top two finishers will advance to a head-to-head showdown on Sunday. Saturday’s winner can lock up the Olympic spot by winning the first race on Sunday. The second place athlete will need to win both races on Sunday.

The 200 metre is a new Olympic event and with mere thousandths of a second separating the winner, pure speed is the name of the game. Top contenders in this event include Halifax’s Mark de Jonge, Ottawa’s Rhys Hill and Montréal’s Richard Dober Jr. CanoeKayak Canada will announce its final selections for nomination to the Canadian Olympic Team on Monday, June 25 at 1:30 p.m. in Montréal.

A team of four women will be selected at trials to go to the Women’s Canoe Cup in France in mid-July. The event will help prepare Canadian athletes for the 2013 Junior and U23 World Championships in Welland, ON next July and will contribute to the development of women’s canoe internationally – an effort Canada has been leading on the global stage. World Champions Laurence Vincent-Lapointe of Trois-Rivières, QC and Mallorie Nicholson of Oakville, ON are two of the biggest names in the sport and both will compete at trials in Montréal.

Results of the trails will impact carding selection for Sport Canada’s athlete assistance program. Several junior and under 22 teams will also be selected to compete at the Canada Day Classic Regatta in Ottawa and the Lake Placid Invitational Regatta in New York state. An under 17 team will be selected to compete at an Olympic Hopes regatta in Szeged, Hungary in September.

In total, 271 athletes from paddling clubs across Canada will compete at the trials.

WHEN:

Saturday, June 23 & Sunday, June 24

Men’s K1 200
Saturday 2:00 p.m. – Final (nine boats)
Sunday 10:50 p.m. – First race-off (two boats)

Congratulations Coach del Valle

Congratulations are due to Rhys del Valle, a CKBC trained Entry Level
Competitive Coach who, as part of CanoeKayak Canada’s Coach Development
month this past May, was inspired to fully complete her Competition
Development coach level. Rhys acquired her Sport Performance Coaching
Certificate from the National Coaching Institute through Canadian Sport

the benefits of working with colleagues representing well over a dozen
different sports disciplines and sport families, and including Olympian,
Christine Girard, were immeasurable.” said Rhys. Rhys will be travelling to Montreal later this month to continue her
coaching education by participating in ‘Coach the Trials’.
