OTTAWA (August 26, 2021) – Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC) is pleased to announce the eight slalom athletes that have been selected to compete in the 2021 International Canoe Federation (ICF) World Cups and World Championships.

The athletes qualified at Ottawa River Runners Tailrace on August 21-22 and will compete in three international events this fall. World Cup 3 in Seu d’Urgell, Spain, World Cup 4 in Pau, France and the world championships in Bratislava, Slovakia. Junior athletes Sophie Gilfilan and Beatrice Olson will not be competing at these events due to conflicting commitments with their academic schedules.

“We are excited to be sending a young group of racers to Europe to support their development and to gain critical race experience as we shift our eyes towards Paris,” said CKC Senior High Performance Manager, James Cartwright. “All three competition venues are mainstays on the international circuit and with limited racing in the last 18 months it’s important for our athletes to get some more races in this year before the competition season ends.”
