Race views from the 5k @canoekayakcan National Team Trials 2022 🥵 Truly loved the races, atmosphere, crazy hot weather, and encouragement from the sidelines (Montreal crowds are like no other for paddling!!) at this years trials. Though I did not reach my goal of qualifying for the 2022 World Championships this summer in Dartmouth, NS., I loved taking a different approach this year with training and pursuing my goals outside of sport. I am proud of the effort I put in and grateful to absolutely everyone that listened to me these past several months… when I was questioning my path. I am also so excited for the team that will be competing and I can’t wait for the world to come to our little paddling paradise 🍁 📷 @rosalie_vermette_

2021 ✨ Just a few of the amazing memories made this year. Ups, downs, and everything in between, I’m excited to see what 2022 has in store.

This place… @burloakcanoeclub ✨🕷 My second home for the past 18 years. The coaches (Adam O, @e.w.huntergeorge, @cloldershaw, Scott O, @larrycaincanoe, @rsarge75 & many others), the training partners, mentors, and friends, the 16-mile creek, the boat bay and weight room, Thursday night war canoe, laps around the parking lot- everything has led me to where I am today. Grateful is an understatement. This club is a community that goes beyond gold-medal performances. Burloak has created an environment built on teamwork, integrity, honesty, hard work, and friendship. It is a place I am so proud to call my home club. Between the years of endless summers, and times where I was away more often than not, this club has always been there for me and truly helped me excel in this sport from a young age. Tie-dying shirts is a long standing tradition, done at the end of the summer with the elementary program. This year, @tessalovv created the BEST t-shirts (#ABL93) for us to dye. I’m so glad I was there to join in on the fun and share a bit of my Olympic experience. #community #oakville #burloak #canoe #kayak #summercamp #olympian #tiedye #family
