2016 Betteridge and Matheu qualify for semi-finals at U23 Slalom Worlds

Congratulations to WO's Lois Betteridge as she qualified for the semi final at the Junior/U23 World Championships! Our National Junior/U23 team has a solid Ontario presence. International events like this provide an abundance of experience and opportunity for these developing athletes. Good luck to everyone!



Betteridge and Maheu qualify for semi-finals at U23 Slalom Worlds
KRAKOW, POLAND (July 14, 2016) – Two Canadian athletes have advanced to the semi-finals at the ICF Canoe Slalom Junior and U23 World Championships in Krakow, Poland. Lois Betteridge (Ottawa, ON) placed twelfth overall on her first run in the U23 Women’s C1 to advance to tomorrow’s semi-final.
“I'm really proud of my run, I feel that I raced to my potential,” said Betteridge. “My race plan was to stay calm and happy, and I did just that. I’m not sure what tomorrow will bring but I'm excited.”




Betteridge will need a top-10 result in tomorrow’s semi to put her through to the afternoon final.
Betteridge doubled up on events and also raced in the U23 Women’s K1 where she finished 44th.
Teammate Florence Maheu (Salaberry-De-Valleyfield, QC) did get through to semi-finals in the U23 Women’s K1.
“I am very satisfied with my day,” said Maheu. “I did a very competitive time being in the top-10 on my second run, so I think it’s possible for me to qualify for the final. That’s my goal.”




On her second run, Maheu finished 28th place overall in the opening heats and will race the semi-final on Sunday.
“Florence and Lois have shown the quality of our up and coming women's team,” said coach Michael Holroyd from Krakow. “'It’s been a great trip, especially for the first timers who have gained valuable experience.”
A full summary of results for the 17-athlete team is shown below. Competition continues through to Sunday with semi-finals, finals and team runs.
