Congratulations to Team Ontario athletes who finished second overall at the Canada Cup Series!  Congratulations also goes out to Rideau Canoe Club for their 4th place overall finish and for being the top ranked canoe club.


OTTAWA – CanoeKayak Canada’s inaugural Canada Cup Race Series wrapped up on Sunday on Lake Banook in Dartmouth, NS. The Canadian National Team was awarded the Canada Cup for racking up the most points over the course of the three-stop series which also visited Montréal and Ottawa. Team Ontario finished second and Team Atlantic was third.

 

A total of twenty-three teams from local clubs, provincial teams and several international teams competed in the newly-launched race series. Peter Niedre, Canoe Kayak Canada’s Director of Coach and Athlete Development says seeing this level of competition taking place within Canada goes a long way in developing home-grown talent.

 

“Having high caliber racing opportunities is critical to developing our next generation of talent here in Canada and this was an amazing first year for the series,” remarked Niedre. “I want to thank the host organizing committees we partnered with, along with the athletes, coaches, volunteers and officials who came together to make this series possible.”
