Brant Oldershaw

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.
