Following a strong year one of the Tokyo cycle for our athletes, the British Canoeing World Class Programme has undertaken a comprehensive annual review and is now pleased to announce that the following athletes will be selected for the UK Sport lottery funded Canoe Sprint, Canoe Slalom and Paracanoe programmes for 2018.
British Canoeing is privileged to receive lottery funding to support our elite athletes as they aspire to be the best that they can be as we move towards Tokyo 2020 and then Paris 2024. In 2017 there were more athletes making matrix performances than places available on the programmes and against performance criteria, tough decisions have had to be made and agreed with UK Sport and the Board of British Canoeing.
Our athletes are already well into preparations for year two of our Tokyo campaign and clarification of funding and elite support enables everyone to establish a firm foundation upon which we can build momentum as we focus on preparations for the 2018 season.
