Canoe Kayak Canada – DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA (June 23, 2017) – The next generation of top Canadian paddlers is turning heads at this weekend’s immediaC Canadian Sprint Canoe Kayak Team Trials at Lake Banook, Nova Scotia. More than 300 athletes are competing in the three-day regatta. The National Trials are being used to select Canada’s 2017 Junior World Championship Team and to continue the selection process for this year’s U23 and Senior World Championships.

One of the loudest cheers of the day erupted when local favourite, Grace Whebby, 18, won the Junior Women’s K1 200m in convincing fashion. Her club, the Mic Mac Aquatic Club, trains on Lake Banook.

On the men’s side, Isaac Finklestein, 18, of the Rideau Canoe Club in Ottawa, provided one of the most dominant performances of the day, winning by 10 seconds in the Junior Men’s C-1 1000m race.

“I put down a good race,” he said. “I felt I put it all out there and I’m happy with the result.”

Finklestein showed promising form during the 2016 international season at both the Junior Worlds, where he raced to a 7th place in C-2 1000m, and the Olympic Hopes regatta where he reached the podium twice. With the benefit of this international experience, the young paddler feels confident heading into his second Junior Worlds this summer in Petesti, Romania from July 27 – 30.
