Quotes

 

“What a phenomenal team we have to represent Canada in this historic Pan Am debut for canoe slalom. This is a big opportunity for our athletes to compete at a high profile competition on home water. With Olympic qualification on the line this is truly a now or never moment and I know the team is absolutely stoked to show what we’re made of.”  – James Cartwright, CanoeKayak Canada’s Slalom High Performance Manager

 

“I’ve never raced in front of a home crowd before of this size so I’m really excited for that. It’s going to be so cool to get a crowd of five hundred cheering for me and Team Canada. Pan Ams will be our continental qualifier for Rio so it is a good confidence builder to be able to race well here on home water.” Ben Hayward, Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games athlete

 

“I’m really excited I get to carry on the legacy from my grandpa who competed in the Pan American Games when it was in Canada so that’s a big deal for me. I’m looking forward to being a part of a multi-sport games when all of the sports come together and we get to feel the excitement of being part of Team Canada.” Haley Daniels, Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games athlete
