OTTAWA, ONTARIO (MAY 13, 2019) – Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC) is proud to name 26 sprint and paracanoe athletes to represent Canada at multiple International events this summer. Canadian athletes were selected following the first National Sprint and Paracanoe Team Trials which took place this past weekend at the Olympic Basin in Montréal. The selected athletes will be competing at the 2019 ICF Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe World Cups and the Brandenburg International Regatta. As a result of this weekend’s performances, some athletes have also secured their spots for the 2019 ICF Junior World Championships.

“It was great to see some of our next gen athletes perform as well as they did against our seniors and earn a well-deserved early nomination to the Junior World Team”, said Graham Barton, Chief Technical Officer. “There were several convincing wins in the senior events and I believe we will see some excellent performances in Europe later this month.”

The first International Canoe Federation’s Sprint and Paracanoe World Cup will be held in Poznan, Poland from May 23rd – 26th, and the second will be held in Duisburg, Germany, from May 30th – June 2nd. The Brandenburg International Regatta will take place in Brandenburg, Germany from May 24th – 25th, and the Junior World Championships are set to begin on August 1st in Pitesti, Romania.

Dartmouth, Nova Scotia will host the next and final National Team Trial event from June 21st – 23rd. This regatta will determine the athletes who will be selected to compete at the U23 World Championships, the Pan American Games and the Olympic Hopes International Regatta, as well as determine the rest of the Junior World Championship Team.
