FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA (May 20, 2022) – Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC), Canoe ‘22 and the International Canoe Federation (ICF) are pleased to host PaddleALL exhibition races during the 2022 ICF Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe World Championships in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. CKC’s PaddleALL programming encourages athletes with intellectual disabilities to train and race to be their best in sport.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming PaddleALL competitors for the first time ever at an ICF World Championship event,” said Kenna Robins, CKC’s Senior Manager of National Program Development. “Paddling is truly a sport for everyone and we are very proud and excited to be able to showcase these deserving athletes at this world-class event later this summer.”

The official launch of PaddleALL programming will not only leave a legacy for the future of PaddleALL programming in Canada, it will also contribute to the global goal of inclusivity within the sport of paddling.

“This project dovetails with ICF’s desire to promote canoeing as a fully inclusive sport as exemplified by our recent signing of an agreement with Special O International to promote the development of canoeing in the Special O World Games,” said ICF Paracanoe Committee Chair, John Edwards.

The exhibition races will kick off on Thursday, August 4th around midday and will be open to international and domestic entries.

“Canoe ’22 is proud to see the PaddleALL event included in the ICF World Championships,” said Canoe ’22 Host Society Chair, Jill D’Alessio. “Providing high-quality training and competition opportunities to all athletes, regardless of ability, is so important for the growth of this sport and for the paddling community.”

Stay tuned for registration details coming soon.

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OTTAWA, ON (May 10, 2022) – Canada’s top slalom paddlers raced last weekend at the National Team Trials and Pan American Championships from May 6-8 in Oklahoma City, USA.

The trials, hosted by the American Canoe Association, served as a selection event for all of the ICF Slalom World Cups, Senior, U23 and Junior World Championships being held over the course of the summer.

“I’m excited to welcome our veterans back and also to see some new paddlers join our program this summer to race the world cups and world championships,” said James Cartwright, Senior High Performance Manager. “We have a very busy season ahead and our team is very motivated to return to a full season of international racing after a tough few years in a pandemic.”

There are many familiar names returning to the international circuit including Tokyo Olympian, Florence Maheu from Kayak Valleyfield, QC.

“I am definitely excited to get back to racing,” said Maheu. “I needed to reset after the Olympics in July which meant that I decided not to compete in World Championships. I feel ready to tackle the season ahead and looking forward to next steps towards 2024 Olympic selection.”

The ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup circuit begins on June 10 in Prague, Czech Republic.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA (May 9, 2022) – Over 100 sprint paddlers from across Canada competed in the first set of National Team Trials from May 2-5 in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia last week. The regatta was held on iconic Lake Banook, home of the 2022 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships. Lake Banook also serves as a home base for three Atlantic Division Canoe Kayak Clubs – Banook Canoe Club, Mic Mac Amateur Aquatic Club and Senobe Aquatic Club.

The trials, hosted by the Atlantic Division of Canoe Kayak Canada (ADCKC), served as a selection regatta for the ICF Sprint World Cup Racice, ICF Canoe Sprint World Cup and Para World Cup Poznan events being held later this month.

“Team Trials on Lake Banook were a fantastic way to kick of our competitive Sprint Racing season with races on the course which will host the World in August,” said Chief Technical Officer, Ian Mortimer. “As we begin the push to Paris it was very promising to see strong paddling from new and veteran senior athletes within our team.”

Eight Olympic and Paralympic paddlers from Tokyo were selected to the team, including 2020 Olympic bronze medallist Katie Vincent.

“It was really nice to start off the season last week on Lake Banook,” said Vincent. “Though it was a lot colder than Tokyo, there was a lot of world-class paddling coming from our team. It was an excellent start to our road to Paris and I am looking forward to the World Championships coming to Dartmouth this August. It’s going to be incredible to have the support of our local paddling community cheering for us this summer on Canadian waters. I get chills just thinking about it.”

The ICF Canoe Sprint World Cup circuit begins on May 20-22 in Racice, Czech Republic followed by ICF Para Canoe and Canoe Sprint World Cup in Poznan, Poland from May 26-29.
