MONTEMOR-O-VELHO, PORTUGAL – Five more Canadian crews have advanced to the A-finals after the second day of competition at the ICF Canoe Sprint Junior and U23 World Championships in Montemor-O-Velho, Portugal.

Katie Vincent of Mississauga, ON advanced to two finals in U23 Women’s C1. She won her semi-final in the U23 Women’s C1 500m. She also won her heat in the U23 Women’s C1 200m to advance directly to Sunday’s final. Vincent won the C1 200m event at last year’s Junior World Championships and has moved up an age category this year but is still proving to be a strong contender.

The U23 Women’s C2 200m crew of Hannah MacIntosh (Dartmouth, NS) and Mariah Godin (Waverley, NS)            finished third in their heat and have advanced directly to the final.

Both of Canada’s Men’s C4 500m crews won their semi-finals to advance to the A-final. The Junior Men’s C4 crew was made up of Ian McCormick (Dartmouth, NS), Gavin Jaeger-Freeborn (Calgary, AB), Jack Leahy (Dartmouth, NS) and Brady Garcia (Calgary, AB). The U23 Men’s C4 crew was made up of Tom Hall (Waverley, NS), Jeremy Stott (Mississauga, ON), Drew Hodges (Ottawa, ON) and Evan Bezemer (Mississauga, ON).

Several Canadian crews advanced to B-finals and 200m semi-finals. A full compilation of Canadian results for the second day of competition is shown below.

Finals start tomorrow and Canada has crews in the Junior Men’s K2 1000m and the U23 Women’s K4 500m. Semi-finals for the 200m events will take place in the afternoon and competition runs through to Sunday.
