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.
