CanoeKayak Canada names team for sprint World Championships
Uncategorized

OTTAWA – CanoeKayak Canada is pleased to name its team to compete at the 2015 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships from August 19 to 23 in Milan, Italy. The process for assessments began with National Team Trials 1 in early May and continued through World Cups and the Pan Am Games. Depending on the event, some selections came down to assessments at training camps.

“Our team is ready and we’re going to Milan with a purpose,” said Scott Logan, CanoeKayak Canada’s High Performance Director. “We’re into the third year of this quadrennial and with Olympic and Paralympic qualification on the line, our athletes are ready to perform at their best for Team Canada.”

Olympic and Paralympic Qualification on the line at Worlds

With the opportunity for Canada to qualify quota spots for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, this year’s World Championships will be particularly significant.

Crews ranking in the top six to eight, depending on the event, will qualify the boat for their country for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. There will be an opportunity to qualify additional Olympic quota spots next May at the Pan American Canoe Sprint Championship & Continental Olympic Qualifier in Gainesville, Georgia. The exception to this is K4 quotas which can only be qualified at World Championships this year. For both Men’s and Women’s K4 events, the top ten boats with representation from four continents will qualify.

For Paralympic qualification, the top six countries with representation from three continents at the 2015 World Championships will qualify a quota spot in each of the six Paralympic events. An additional four quota spots per event will be up for grabs at the 2016 Paracanoe World Championships next May 17 to 19 in Duisburg, Germany.

More information on the International Canoe Federation’s quota qualification process can be found here. Athletes to fill the quota spots Canada earns will be selected next year.
