CanoeKayak BC is proud to announce the canoe and kayak athletes who will be representing Team BC at the Western Canada Summer Games which will be held in Wood Buffalo, Alberta from August 6-11.

The athletes were selected based on the 2015 Team BC Western Canada Summer Games selection criteria following the trials held on May 24 in Burnaby.

“I am excited with the composition of the team. We have an excellent mix of veterans, including Alex Brent (competed at the 2014 Junior World Championships and Youth Olympic Games) and Zach Morgan (member of the Senior National Development Team) and a number of talented rookies, such as Hana Ronayne and Lauryn Cheung. We also have great coaching group. Overall, I anticipate it to be a great Games!”
