Paddle Australia (PA) is pleased to announce the athletes who have been selected to the Junior and U23 Canoe Slalom National teams for 2022.
Following selection at the 2022 ICF Oceania Canoe Slalom Championships and 2022 PA Canoe Slalom Australian Open earlier this, PA is pleased to present the teams which will contest the Junior/U23 World Championships in 2022.
PA National Performance Director Kim Crane said Australia has a proud track record on the international stage for Canoe Slalom and she is pleased to present the National teams for 2022.
“After what has been a challenging few years for our Australian Canoe Slalom community, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and flooding at Penrith, I am pleased to be able to announce the athletes who have been selected to our junior and U23 national teams,” Crane said.
“I was so proud to see these athletes racing so well at the Oceania Championships and Australian Open earlier this year, and can’t wait to see what they can do during the international season.
“A special thanks must also go to the coaches, parents and supporters who have continued to offer support to these athletes who are striving to achieve their sporting ambitions,” she said.
The Junior/U23 World Championships will be held in Ivrea, Italy from 5-10 July.
