MEXICO CITY – The Canadian CanoeKayak Team is heading back home with 23 medals after a successful four day competition in Mexico City. The team won a total of four gold, fourteen silver and five bronze to rank second overall in points at the Pan American Sprint Canoe Championships.

Host nation Mexico won the competition. Canada was second for total medal count and fourth for gold medals of the 16 participating countries. The championships were the qualifiers for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games next year making for a strong level of competition. Canada receives quota spots as the host nation.

Jillian Perrone of Oakville, ON was a double gold medalist. She won the Junior Women’s K1 200 and also paired with Juliette Brault of Pointe-Claire, QC to take the top spot in Junior Women’s C2 500.

Marshall Hughes of Waverley, NS won gold in the Senior Men’s K1 5000 metre. The Junior Men’s K4 1000 metre crew of Nicholas Matveev (Toronto, ON), Jacob Steele (Halifax, NS), Mark Marschalko (Waverley, NS) and Davis Evans (Ottawa, ON) took a gold medal in their event.

“Our athletes consistently raced against world class competitors including a number of medalists from this year’s world championships,” said High Performance Director, Scott Logan. “For many of our junior and senior development team athletes this was a chance to gain international race experience and an opportunity for us to see the depth of our talent pool looking beyond 2016.”

This was the last international competition of the year for the sprint team. Slalom World Championships ramp up next week in Deep Creek, Maryland, USA and Marathon World Championships will take place at the end of the month in Oklahoma City, USA.
