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.
For Olympic Team selections, the field has been narrowed down to a final five in the two events in which Canada holds athlete quota spots. Michael Tayler (Ottawa, ON), John Hastings (Aurora, ON) and Ben Hayward (Edmonton, AB) are still in contention for the Men’s K1 Olympic spot. 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.
