Following five days of competition at the  Canadian Sprint Team Trials in Gainesville, Georgia, Canoe Kayak Canada is pleased name athletes to teams for the Olympic Games, Pan American Continental Qualifier, World Cup, Under 23 European Tour, Pan American Championships World University Championships and CANAMEX.

Two athletes have been selected for nomination to the Canadian Olympic Team based on quota spots that were qualified last year at the 2015 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships. There is the potential to qualify up to eight additional athlete quota spots at the Pan American Continental Qualifier taking place on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Georgia on May 19–20.

“The road to the Olympic Games is a long and challenging one,” said Scott Logan, Canoe Kayak Canada’s High Performance Director. “Some athletes are well on their way, some have additional qualification races, and for others who have been named to various teams, this is part of a long-term pathway to excellence.”

The trials were also used to make recommendations for Sport Canada’s Athlete Assistance program for the period of May to October 2016. Carding nominations will be published soon.
