FOZ DO IGUASSU, BRAZIL – Six Canadian athletes made their semi-final runs today at the 2015 ICF Canoe Slalom Junior and U23 World Championships in Foz do Iguassu, Brazil.

Ottawa’s Michael Tayler posted the top result with a fourteenth place ranking in semi-finals of the U23 Men’s K1. A two second penalty for a gate touch put him just out of the top-ten needed to make the finals in a highly competitive field. Ryley Penner of Lundbreck, AB also raced the U23 Men’s K1 and finished 29th.

In U23 Women’s K1, Jazmyne Denhollander (Chilliwack, BC) finished 20th while Florence Maheu (Salaberry de Valleyfield, QC) came in 26th.

In C1, Liam Smedley (Dunrobin, ON) wound up 22nd in the U23 semi-final and Ottawa’s Ben Risk was 28th in the junior final.

Team runs and finals take place Saturday and Sunday. The Canadian team will return home to prepare for National Team Trials taking place in Minden, ON.
