SZEGED, HUNGARY (August 20, 2019) – The most anticipated event of the season will be kicking off in Szeged, Hungary on August 21st. Top sprint and paracanoe paddlers from around the world will be competing at the 2019 International Canoe Federation’s (ICF) Senior World Championships.

The four-day event will feature 16 Canadian sprint athletes and 4 Canadian paracanoe athletes competing for possible Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifications.

Two-time Senior World Champion and four-time U23 World Champion Katie Vincent (Mississauga, ON) will compete in the C1 200m and C1 5000m events.

Also competing for Canada is Mark Oldershaw (Burloak, ON), 3-time Olympian, London 2012 bronze medallist and TORONTO 2015 Pan Am games silver medallist in C1 1000m.

Another 3-time Olympian and 2012 bronze medallist, Mark De Jonge (Maskwa, NS) will compete in the K4 500m event with teammates Nicholas Matveev (Balmy Beach, ON) , Pierre-Luc Poulin (Lac-Beauport, QC) and Simon McTavish (Mississauga, ON).

The paracanoe events will be kicking things off on Wednesday morning, starting with Trinity Tratch (Calgary, AB) competing in men’s KL2 200m.

Rio 2016 paralympian Erica Scarff (Balmy Beach, ON) will then compete in women’s KL3 200m, followed by Mathieu St-Pierre (Shawinigan, QC) in men’s VL2 200m, and Andrea Nelson (Balmy Beach, ON) in women’s KL2 200m.

“The para team has been preparing here in Szeged and we have seen some great improvement from these athletes.  A qualification will require a top seven finish. It will be tough, but performances earlier this summer indicate they have the potential to reach the final and after that anything is possible”, said Chief Technical Officer of CKC, Graham Barton.  “The sprint team had a great pre-world camp in Kienbaum, Germany.  We have several boats in the running for qualification spots. The singles events are extremely tough with a top 5 finish required for qualification. The tandems can earn a spot with a top 8 finish and the four boats can qualify if they finish 10th or better. This is our goal this week. While we can qualify additional boats at a Continental event next spring, it is always better to get as many qualified this week as possible.”

SAO PAULO, BRAZIL (July 8, 2019) – The 2019 Para Pan American Championships were an incredible success for Canoe Kayak Canada Para paddlers. All four athletes who competed reached the podium, for a combined total of seven medals for Canada. The event was held in Sao Paulo, Brazil on July 6th.

2016 Rio Paralympian Erica Scarff (Balmy Beach, ON) was the only gold medal winner for Canada taking first place in the women’s KL3 500m event, followed by a silver medal in the 200m event. “Brazil hosted a wonderful event. I was excited to race 500m for the first time internationally,” said Scarff. “Even though it is not a Paralympic event, I am still very proud to have been able to claim the gold for Canada. The whole team had an impressive showing and being part of a supportive team makes the whole process much more enjoyable.”

Trinity Tratch (Calgary, AB) won double silver medals in men’s 200m and 500m KL2, and Andrea Nelson (Balmy Beach, ON) won bronze in women’s KL2 500m as well as silver in 200m. Mike Trauner (Ottawa River, ON) completed the medals for Canada with an impressive bronze medal performance in the men’s VL3 500m.

“This event was a great event to use as a tune up for the World Championships in August. Canadian athletes showed grit and resilience to pull off great performances. We had some long travel days and other challenges, but they pulled through when it counted. We now have six weeks of training back in Montreal to sharpen up our racing.” Said Marc Creamer, Canoe Kayak Canada Paracanoe Head Coach.

Canoe Kayak Canada Paddlers Dominate in First International Events of the Season
Canoe Sprint, Paracanoe, World Cups

POZNAN, POLAND / BRANDENBURG, GERMANY (May 27, 2019) – Canada’s top sprint and paracanoe paddlers made their country proud this weekend, earning a combined total of ten medals at two international competitions. Four of those were earned at the International Canoe Federation’s (ICF) first World Cup in Poland, with the remaining collected by junior athletes at the Brandenburg International Regatta in Germany.

The headliners at the World Cup this weekend were Canadians Laurence Vincent-Lapointe (Trois-Rivières, QC) and Katie Vincent (Mississauga, ON) maintaining their unbeaten record and winning gold on Sunday in the women’s C2 500m Olympic event. Katie claimed another gold medal in the C1 5000m long distance race as well. On Saturday, the Canadian duo crowded the podium in C1 200m with Laurence taking gold with a time of 45:265, followed closely by teammate Katie who won the silver with a time of 46:413.

“The game plan from the beginning was just to try and maintain control of the boat and how we were feeling, and just try and make decisions as we go,” said Vincent. “We’ve worked a lot on those parts of our relationship, and being able to communicate and work those things out. We’ve come a long way and it’s made our boat faster.”

In addition to the women’s canoers, the men’s K4 crew posted an outstanding result, finishing 4th in an exciting race against Germany, France and Portugal. The Canadian crew includes 2012 Olympic bronze medallist Mark de Jonge (Maskwa, NS), Nicholas Matveev (Balmy Beach, ON), Pierre-Luc Poulin (Lac Beauport, QC) and Simon McTavish (Mississauga, ON).

Canadian Para athletes were successful as well with all three making the finals. Trinity Tratch (Calgary, AB) came 9th in the KL2 200m event. Teammate Mathieu St-Pierre (Shawinigan, QC) came 8th in VL2 200m, and Erica Scarff (Balmy Beach, ON) placed 7th in KL3 200m.

The Brandenburg International Regatta was the second international event of the weekend, where Canadian Junior athletes dominated. Sophia Jensen (Cascades, QC) won C1 200m for the Junior and U23 category, as well as the C1 500m Junior event. Teammate Julia Lilley Osende (Mic Mac, NS) won the C1 1000m Junior race on Sunday. The two athletes also competed in the C2 500m Junior event where they once again took home the gold medal. Cameron Low (Balmy Beach, ON) did exceptionally well in his events, coming 4th in the K1 1000m Junior event.

“I was very impressed by the results here in Poznan at World Cup 1 and in Brandenburg where our juniors took on a strong German field”, said Graham Barton, CKC Chief Technical Officer. “I believe we have raised the standards and most have raised their performance level and closed the gap on the rest of the world.  Laurence and Katie showed their dominance again even in challenging conditions and the Men’s K4 is a good example where every race now they are consistently battling with the rest of the world and progressing toward the podium.”

POZNAN, POLAND / BRANDENBURG, GERMANY (May 23, 2019) – The sprint and paracanoe community will be keeping a close watch on Canadian paddlers this week, as two International Canoe Kayak events kick off the competitive season. The International Canoe Federation’s (ICF) first Sprint and Paracanoe World Cup of the season is being held in Poznan, Poland from May 23rd – 26th, and the Brandenburg International Regatta begins on May 24th until the 26th.

The Canadian World Cup and the Brandenburg International Regatta teams were selected following the first set of National Team Trials which were held in Montréal in mid-May. Twenty-three Senior athletes were selected to represent Canada for the World Cups, and three Junior athletes were selected for the Brandenburg Regatta. The second and final World Cup will be held in Duisburg, Germany from May 30th – June 2nd.

“There are 56 nations here and many are making selections for the 2019 Canoe Sprint World Championships which is also the first Olympic Qualifier”, said Graham Barton, Chief Technical Officer.  “It should be a very competitive World Cup and will be a great indication of where we are and what potential we have to qualify in August. Our team is in good spirits and I am confident we will see some great results this weekend”

Canada’s Trinity Tratch (Calgary) will be the first Canadian paddler to race in Poznan on Thursday morning at 3:20 EST for the KL2 200m heats. Natalie Davison (Rideau) and Lissa Bissonnette (Pointe-Claire) will follow at 8:10 and 8:15 EST, respectively, for the K1 200m heats.

World Champions Katie Vincent (Mississauga) and Laurence Vincent-Lapointe (Trois-Rivières) will also be making their debuts at the World Cup on Thursday morning at 9:15 and 9:20 EST, respectively, for the C1 200m heats, followed by many of our elite Canadian athletes battling it out later that day.

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC (May 12, 2019) – The Sprint and Paracanoe National Team Trials #1 in Montréal came to a close Sunday afternoon after three days of hard racing. Later this week, Canoe Kayak Canada will be announcing the athletes selected to represent Canada at the upcoming Senior World Cup Events in Poland and Germany.

 

“Our coaches were very pleased with the results this weekend”, said Chief Technical Officer, Graham Barton. “We will be sending a team that will battle it out for selection to the 2019 Senior World Championship Team at two World Cups later in May and a small team of juniors to compete at an international regatta in Brandenburg, Germany. I believe our teams will be very competitive as we start the summer of 2019.”

 

On Saturday, World and Pan American Games Champion, Laurence Vincent-Lapointe (Trois-Rivières), took the gold in the C1 200m event, followed by her C2 partner Katie Vincent (Mississauga) and Junior athlete Sophia Jensen (Cascades). Vincent and Vincent-Lapointe continued their podium appearances on Sunday by winning the C2 500m race, as Sophia Jensen and Julia Lilley-Osende (Mic Mac) took silver, and Marlee Macintosh (Maskwa) and Anna Roy-Cyr (Lac-Beauport) took the bronze. On the men’s canoe side, Olympic medallist Mark Oldershaw (Burloak) won the C1 1000m in a close finish with Connor Fitzpatrick (2nd – Senobe) and Drew Hodges (3rd – Rideau).

 

The paracanoe athletes benefitted greatly from the opportunity to have multiple races this weekend which will help prepare them for international competitions. Trinity Tratch (Calgary) and Mathieu St.Pierre (Shawinigan) had excellent performances as they battled against the clock. Michael Trauner (Ottawa River) demonstrated great improvement making for very intense head to head racing.

 

The K4 events were the last races of the day on Sunday and were an exciting end to finish off the weekend. The women’s K4 500m champions were Lissa Bissonnette, Michelle Russell, Madeline Schmidt and Courtney Stott, and the men’s K4 500m event champions were Mark De Jong, Nicholas Matveev, Simon Mctavish and Pierre-Luc Poulin.

DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA (September 16, 2018) – Team Canada had another great weekend of competitions on Lake Banook at the 2018 Panamerican Canoe Sprint and Paracanoe Championships. With 16 participating countries, Canada finished the regatta as overall champion with 33 gold, 19 silver and 6 bronze medals.

The Canadian men’s K4 crew of Marshall Hughes (Nova Scotia), Vincent Jourdenais (Québec), Nicholas Matveev (Ontario) and Pierre-Luc Poulin (Québec) started the regatta off on a high note with a win in the men’s K4 500m, edging out Argentina by half a second.

“We pulled together as a team and came out with a great race on our home course. It was amazing to be able to be the first race and first gold to set the tone,” said Poulin. “We faced the boats we will need to beat next year for Olympic qualification, so this was a good opportunity to see what we need to do for next year.”

Shortly after, the women’s K4 crew of Courtney Stott (Ontario), Lissa Bissonnette (Québec), Michelle Russell (Nova Scotia) and Maddy Schmidt (Ontario) put on a similar performance, this time besting Mexico to top the podium.

“That race was closer than we would have liked, but it’s all motivation to keep us moving toward next year to qualify for Tokyo,” said Michelle Russell of Fall River, NS.

Coming off a gold medal performance at the 2018 World Championships, Katie Vincent (Ontario) and Laurence Vincent-Lapointe (Québec) continued a winning season with a victory in C2 500m.

Again, the Canadian Women’s Canoe team showed impressive performances during the week winning a total of 9 gold medals in the Senior and Junior categories.

“After travelling to compete with Team Canada all summer, it was great to race on the lake I call home. My family and friends were able to come watch me win a bronze medal today which was very special.” Explains women’s canoe athlete Hannah MacIntosh, who competed in Montemor-O-Velho, Portugal at the ICF Paracanoe and Canoe Sprint World Championships at the end of August.
