2x World Champion, Olympic bronze medalist

Our first paddle of 2020 is in the books and based on the weather it looks like this might be a lucky year for us!

Home for a few days and making the most of this winter wonderland! 🎄

Well done, Fall. You’ve been good to us this year.

Enjoying a recovery week on the east coast with these guys + Simon. Thanks to @ecokayakns for the amazing morning on the water!

Another beautiful morning working hard with the guys!

World cups are a wrap! We didn’t have the best semi final yesterday but had a great race in the B final and took the win :) Photo: Bence Vekassy

A couple of screenshots from the heats today at Duisburg World Cup 2. We were flying off the start line but paid for it a bit at the end with Czech and France passing us in the final meters. Semis and final are tomorrow at 9:30 and 13:23 CEST, respectively (if all goes well).

The K4 was flying today in Poznan! 4th place and so close to the medals! I’m very proud of what we’ve done so far with this team and excited to keep chipping away at things. Duisburg World Cup is next!

Looks like K4 is on the menu this season! Happy to take the win with @nmatveevv @ppoulin11 and @simon.mctavish at National Team Trials yesterday in Montreal. Off to Europe this week for World Cups!

Check out this lovely new @nelokayaks #sete! I decided to go with a classic look for this one and I love it! Thanks to @nelokayaks for your support now and throughout the years. Let’s make this year a good one!

Weight testing 160kg. It would have been nice to hear the bar hit the bench but this’ll have to do for now.

It was an icy, slushy, beautiful morning for paddling yesterday.

A paddle and weights for the last two workouts of the year. Thanks for being a good year, 2018!
