and encouraging to see the growing numbers of young participants at the
event from across the province. Thanks to Nanaimo for their hospitality

Richard Dalton named General Manager of Canoe Niagara 2013

The Welland Recreation Canal Corporation has named Richard Dalton as the
General Manager of Canoe Niagara 2013. Richard will play a leadership
role in delivering the 2013 ICF Junior and Under 23 Canoe Sprint World
Championships in Welland, ON next August 1 to 4. Richard is a familiar face in the paddling community. He has been a
competitive member of the National Team for fourteen years and competed
at the 2004 Olympic Games in C1 and C2. He placed sixth in both events
at the Olympics and has won medals at the World Championships and World
Cups. Richard also holds a degree in Business Administration (Economics)
from St. Mary’s University. He has recently announced his retirement
from the National Team and will stay involved with the sport through his
new role.

The 2013 ICF Junior and Under 23 Canoe Sprint World Championships will
attract the fastest young paddlers on the planet and will be a major
stepping stone for many athletes preparing for the 2016 Olympic Games in
Rio de Janeiro. The event is expected to draw 1200 athletes from 55
countries. Hosting an event of this magnitude will be a major boost in
putting the Niagara Region on the map as an international host. While the Sprint Junior World Championships have traditionally been held
every second year, this will be the first time for an Under 23 class at
World Championships. Canada will be the first country to hold the
combined event which will continue to be held on an annual basis. Races
will include the full Olympic programme along with two women’s canoe
events.

CanoeKayak Canada congratulates Richard on his new job and we are
looking forward to working with him to extend a warm Canadian welcome to
teams from around the World next August. Contact information:
