Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (Aug 2, 2022) – Canada’s top sprint and paracanoe paddlers will line up on the start line at Lake Banook for the pinnacle event of the year from Wednesday, August 3 until Sunday, August 7. The event will showcase the top sprint athletes in both Olympic and Paralympic disciplines. For the first time at an ICF World Championships, PaddleALL exhibition events will be featured as part of the competition program.
Team Canada has a strong contingent of athletes racing on home waters this week including several Tokyo 2020 Olympians and Paralympians poised to paddle to the podium. Team Canada brought home 11 medals from the ICF World Cup in Krakow, Poland in May.
“It’s incredibly exciting to be part of the home team this year at the World Championships on Lake Banook,” said Olympic Bronze medallist, Katie Vincent. “I hope, as a whole team, we can carry the momentum from our successful World Cup tour and create some memories that will inspire the next generation of paddlers all across Canada!”
The event program includes races in women’s, men’s, and paracanoe categories of canoe and kayak in single, doubles and quad boat races. A total of 32 different finals will be raced in 200, 500, 1000, and 5000 meter distances.
