Canoe Slalom & Extreme Slalom athletes selected onto the British Canoeing World Class Programme for 2022

Subject to appeals and subject to final acceptance by UK Sport, British Canoeing has nominated 20 athletes to the UK Sport National Lottery funded World Class Programmes (WCP) in Canoe Slalom & Extreme Slalom as it builds towards the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and beyond.

In addition three non programme ‘prospect support’ athletes are nominated as part of the same review process.

The cohort of 20 athletes have been nominated after a rigorous assessment process which looked at a number of factors including recent and past performances and in particular an evidence based assessment of future potential based upon performance data and trajectory data as outlined in the programme qualification policy. 

Subject to final acceptance, nominated athletes will receive financial assistance from UK Sport’s Athlete Performance Award (APA) alongside support for training camps and international competitions for the 2022 season. They will also have access to coaching, sport science support and medical services.
