Posted By:

SZEGED, HUNGARY (May 28, 2017) — The Women’s Canoe continent of the Canadian sprint paddling team added another four medals to the weekend total on the final day of competition at ICF Canoe Sprint World Cup 2 in Szeged, Hungary. An additional silver medal in the Mixed C1 relay made for five medals today and seven overall at the World Cup.

Laurence Vincent Lapointe (Trois-Rivières, QC) won gold in the Women’s C1 200m and was joined on the podium by teammate Katie Vincent (Mississauga, ON) who won bronze in the event. Katie Vincent won a silver yesterday in the 500m distance.

The success for Vincent and Vincent Lapointe continued as the pair earned the full set of medals between them today by winning a silver in Women’s C2 500m.

Nadya Crossman-Serb (Winnipeg, MB) and Anne-Sophie Lavoie-Parent (Trois-Rivières, QC) rounded out the count with a silver in the Women’s C2 200m. The crew also placed fifth in the C2 500m.

Hannah MacIntosh (Dartmouth, NS) and Rowan Hardy-Kavanagh (Ottawa, ON) were fifth in the C2 200m.

Women’s Canoe events are slated for inclusion for the first time in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The competition has been surging in recent years and it is encouraging to see such strong results from the Canadian team who have been international leaders in developing the discipline and advocating for Olympic inclusion.

Michelle Russell (Fall River, NS) and Andréanne Langlois (Québec, QC) has a strong result with a seventh place finish in the Women’s K2 500m. In the Women’s K1 200m, Langlois finished eleventh overall while Russell came in fifteenth.

Roland Varga (Richmond Hill, ON) and Katie Vincent won a silver medal in the C1 6x500m Mixed relay. This is a new event and with it, Vincent brought her weekend World Cup medal count to four with three silvers and a bronze.
