WELLAND, ON – Following an intense three days of trials at the Welland International Flatwater Centre, CanoeKayak Canada is pleased to name its teams for the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships, the ICF Junior and U23 Canoe Sprint World Championships Team, Lake Placid International Regatta and Pan American Championships Paracanoe Team.

“We saw many impressive performances over the past three days and athletes and their coaches should feel proud of what they’ve demonstrated,” said Scott Logan, CanoeKayak Canada’s High Performance Director. “I am impressed with the quality of our teams and know how excited the athletes are to represent Canada internationally – for some of them right in front of the home crowd in Welland. Congratulations to all.”

Logan extends his thanks to the coaches, family members, volunteers and supporters who are an integral part of building a strong National Team.

“It takes support throughout the entire system to build such an extraordinary team and we’re excited to be charging forward to achieve our goals.”

The senior team will compete in Duisburg, Germany from August 27 to September 1. The junior and under 23 team will compete as home crowd favourites on the same course they qualified on as Welland welcomes the World from August 1 to 4. Women’s canoe and Paracanoe teams will compete in Lake Placid, New York. The Paracanoe contingent of Canada’s team for the Pan American Championships in Puerto Rico from October 17 to 20 has also been selected. Canada’s Women’s C2 entry for World Championships will also be determined in Lake Placid.

Teams have been approved by the High Performance Committee following pre-determined selection criteria. A cross-reference of the team selections and criteria will be posted later this week.

CanoeKayak Canada is the national governing body for competitive paddling in Canada. The organization’s vision is to be a Canadian sport for families, communities and champions. From supporting clubs to developing a competitive National Team, CanoeKayak Canada works to grow a sport which is a rich part of Canada’s heritage.
