Team BC paddlers are bringing home three medals from the 2017 Canada Summer Games. Overall, Team BC, with 146 medals, was second to Ontario in the overall medal standings. The 146 medals is an all time record for Team BC.

Cassidy MacPherson (Ridge) won gold in the women’s K-1 5000 race. Her time of 21:13.71 was 25 seconds ahead of second place. Known for her love of cucumbers, she commented following her victory that their “power” helped her as she “had two cucumbers before the race.”

In a very close men’s K-1 5000 race, Alex Brent (Ridge) won the bronze medal. His time of 19:16.323 was just seven seconds behind the gold medal finisher. This was Brent’s second bronze medal of the Games, his first coming in the men’s K-1 1000. In another close finish, he was only two seconds out of first.
