Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC) is pleased to announce the 2021 Sprint World Championship teams – Senior, Para, Under 23, Junior and Olympic Hopes.
 
Following a week of exciting racing at the 2021 Sprint National Championships at the Rideau Canoe Club, athletes were selected based on their performances in their respective events throughout the week.
 
The Senior World Championship team and Para team will compete in Copenhagen, Denmark from September 15-19 with several Tokyo 2020 Olympians returning to competition, including women’s C2 bronze medallist, Katie Vincent.
 
The U23 and Junior World Championship team will be flying out to Montemor-o-Velho, Portugal for their start of their event from September 3-6th. Five U23 athletes will also be competing at the Senior World Championships one week later.
 
The Olympic Hopes Regatta will take place in Racice, Czech Republic from September 10-12th, 2021.
 
“It was very exciting to see so many talented paddlers back in action here in Canada following such a long hiatus,” said Chief Technical Officer, Graham Barton. “It will be great to return to international competition with many of our Tokyo Olympians and future 2024 and 2028 Olympic hopefuls in action. We are confident our COVID safeguards, combined with the host organizing committee protocols, will offer a safe environment for all of our travelling teams.”
