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.

Canoe Kayak Canada names team for ICF Canoe Slalom World Cups
 
OTTAWA, ON (May 24, 2016) – Canoe Kayak Canada is pleased to name its senior elite team to represent Canada at the 2016 ICF Canoe Slalom World Cups in Europe. The announcement follows a weekend of National Team Trials at the Rutherford Creek Whitewater Park near Pemberton, BC. Athletes made a total of four runs to accumulate ranking points in pursuit of a top-3 overall position and also had to achieve a performance standard based on relative time to other athletes.

In Men’s C1, Cameron Smedley (Dunrobin, ON) and Spencer Pomeroy (Ottawa, ON) are the final two. The athletes will continue to accumulate points based on their performances at World Cups 2 and 3 in La Seu d'Urgell, Spain from June 10 – 12 and Pau, France from June 17 – 19. The Olympic Team will be decided at the end of World Cup 3.
 
In Women’s event, Jessica Groeneveld (Innisfail, AB) will represent Canada in Women’s K1 at World Cups, while Haley Daniels (Calgary, AB) will represent Canada in Women’s C1. Canoe Slalom Team Trials will take place for Junior and Under 23 athletes this May 27 – 29 in Kananaskis, AB.

Results of the trials count towards Olympic selection in the Men’s K1 and Men’s C1 events where Canada holds quota spots. The field will get narrowed to a maximum of three athletes in each event who will head to Europe to compete at World Cups. Points accumulated at World Cups 2 and 3 will be the deciding factor for selections to the Canadian Olympic Team.
 
Ben Hayward (Edmonton, AB) had a second and third place result in Men’s K1 yesterday. David Ford (Edmonton, AB) had one second place result and Toby Roessingh (Calgary, AB) had a third place result to round out the top three.
 
Cameron Smedley (Dunrobin, ON) won both of his runs in the Men’s C1 yesterday to take the win in three out of four of the runs over the weekend. His brother, Liam Smedley (Dunrobin, ON) was second in both C1 runs yesterday while Spencer Pomeroy (Ottawa, ON) was third.
 
In addition to the Olympic selection process, the Trials will also be used to select athletes for additional senior teams including World Cups. Jessica Groeneveld (Innisfail, AB) and Thea Froehlich (Ottawa, ON) each won one run yesterday in the Women’s K1. Haley Daniels (Calgary, AB) raced alone to win the Women’s C1. Athletes in all classes are chasing performance standards in addition to a top-3 ranking in order to be nominated to the national team.

Nominations to the World Cup Team will be announced shortly. The national team will compete at World Cups 2 and 3 in La Seu d'Urgell, Spain from June 10 – 12 and Pau, France from June 17 – 19.
