Paddle Australia is pleased to confirm the athletes who will represent Australia in Canoe Slalom on the upcoming ICF World Cup circuit and ICF World Championships.
Following selection at the 2022 ICF Oceania Canoe Slalom Championships and 2022 PA Canoe Slalom Australian Open earlier this year, and selection of the Junior and U23 teams last week, PA is pleased to present the senior team to represent Australia in 2022.
Olympic gold medalist Jessica Fox and dual Olympian Lucien Delfour headline a team which boasts a mix of youth and experience across both the kayak and canoe boats.
PA National Performance Director Kim Crane said with the international season fast approaching, she is pleased to present the National teams for 2022.
“Our Canoe Slalom athletes, coaches and staff have been thrown plenty of challenges in the past two years, including limited access to international competition, and flooding of our training venue in Penrith,” Crane said.
“So I’m excited to confirm the athletes who I’m sure will fly the Australian flag with pride this upcoming international season.
“Our team is a great mix of athletes who have competed on the world stage before, where for some this will be their first international tour as part of the senior team.
“After seeing them all race on home soil earlier this year, I’m excited to see what they can do across the World Cup season and World Championships,” she said.
The ICF Senior World Championship will be held in Ausburg, Germany from 26-31 July.
The 2022 ICF World Cup season will start in Prague, Czech Republic on 10 June.
