Congratulations to Alberta's Ben Hayward for his brilliant result at the Junior Pre-Worlds in Roudnice, Czech. Ben captured the Bronze medal in K1.
Sitting in 4th place after first runs, Ben took the bull by the horns and raced to a podium position. This is best result in years for Canada, and shows the strong potential Ben has as he moves up to the senior rankings next year.
Breanne Lyons on her first trip to Europe, placed 37th in the womens kayak class.
In the team event Canada was strong in the C1 class bringing home a silver, and the mens kayak Team with Andrew Jobe from Calgary was 15th.
Well done to all the competitors!
