We are watching closely to see how the event will play out at the World Championships in Pau where it will become an official medal event for the first time” added Canoe Kayak Canada’s head coach, Michal Staniszewski.
 
Canada’s Cameron Smedley of Dunrobin, Ontario finished 25th in the men’s C1 semi-final after a strong start in the qualification round and demonstrating good speed and form on the course. “Cameron has had a lot of success racing in Seu in the past, today the penalties on the top of the race course added up and kept him out of contention for the finals.” Added Canoe Kayak Canada’s slalom High Performance Manager.
