Amos started Kayaking at the Age of 11, and competed in the Alberta Summer Games. Where he was introduced to canoe polo, soon after started training with the Edmonton Group and pursued a spot on the National U21 team. He attended the 2004, 2006 and 2008 worlds as a U21 and took a break to get settled in his career. Found himself missing the sport and returned to the game in 2011, since then he has not regretted a moment representing Canada’s Senior Men’s Team in 2012 and 2014 at the World Championships. We had a wonderful opportunity to play at the 2013 World Games in Cali, Colombia against the top 5 teams in the world, which was an honour and the highlight to his polo career.

Coming from an accomplished family of Olympic paddlers, Brant excelled in sprint kayaking and many other sports before discovering canoe polo at the end of 2009. After a year and a half of training, and a month playing down in Australia, Brant joined the Canadian Senior Men’s team in 2011 for the Pan-American Championships in Texas. In 2012, Brant led his Toronto club team to a bronze at Canadian National Championships while leading the competition in scoring, and was a member of the Canadian Men’s team at the World Championships in Poland. In 2013, Brant was fortunate enough to be a part of the Canadian team that came 6th at the World Games in Cali, Columbia. Since then he has remained a member of the core Canadian men’s team at the 2014 World Championships in France and at the 2015 Pan-American Championships in Edmonton, where the team won gold. With his added international experience, Brant is excited to help the Canadian Men’s team climb the standings at the 2016 World Championships in Italy and build towards a strong result at the 2018 World’s in Welland, not far from his home. Outside of competing and training, Brant keeps busy designing buildings as the lead Structural Engineer for his firm’s Hamilton-Niagara Region.

After training about 8 years for flatwater kayaking I was presented with the opportunity to represent Canada in canoe polo at the 2010 junior world championships in Milan, Italy. In 2012 I represented Canada again in Poznan, Poland Junior worlds and in the summer of 2015 I made the senior team and we won Pan Ams in Edmonton.
I still race for flatwater when I can and compete in cross country skiing during the winter.

I’m graduating from Université de Montréal in Physics and will be pursuing a masters look forward to finding out what’s next in store for me.
