2x World Champion, Olympic bronze medalist

The past week has been full of surprises. Our training camp in Florida was canceled and we are heading back to Canada, where we will be self-isolating for 14 days. Not quite what I had in mind... Thankfully, CANFund surprised me with a cheque last week which, among other costs, will go towards dealing with the unexpected flights home for my wife and son, who were visiting as the covid-19 situation evolved. Thank you to @canfund and donors for always being there for me and Canada’s athletes.

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.
