Led by MCC’s senior presence, Dana Morgoch, a selection of MCC’s High Performance athletes raced well at this past weekends’ National Team Trials in Montréal.
With a good result, Dana placed 8th in the C1 1000m event with lots of potential to climb the ranks at the next set of Trials. Dana paddled fantastically well in his semi final to qualify for the A final which seemed to spark a few other great MCC results.
Keir Johnston made a giant leap forward with his progress towards his goal of making the men’s kayak team with a 5th place finish in the K1 1000m B final. Congrats Keir and coach Lucie!
Keir teamed with club mate Anatolyy Mykhayletsky in the K2 1000m event and placed 9th, again with great potential in six weeks! Good luck guys!
Two of MCC’s Junior athletes also raced in Montréal- Katie Vincent and Evan Bezemer. Even scrapped the rust off and put together a few great races in both C1 and C2 events. Definitely a big step forward for him in his ambitions to represent Canada later this summer at the Junior Worlds. It’s back to the grindstone for him and coach now.
Once again, Katie Vincent made headlines on the race course. Racing up a class (or two), Katie performed beyond expectations in the C1 200m event placing 2nd just behind Canada’s multiple time Senior World Champion. It was simply one of the most exciting women’s canoe races MCC’s coaches have every seen.
Katie also recorded a 3rd place finish in the C2 500m event on Sunday.
This group of athletes made MCC proud and will lead the rest of our High Performance athletes at coming events. Way to be MCC!

National Volunteer Week – Thank you to Missy Members on the Volunteer Thank You Wall
This is National Volunteer Week and as we start a new season of Missy Spirit, it’s a perfect time to say a heartfelt thanks to all the paddlers, coaches, friends and family who volunteer their time and energy to making the Mississauga Canoe Club, our Division and our whole sport the best it can be! Your contribution, whether in a boat, behind a barbecue, on a board or at a Bingo is most appreciated – we could never do it without you!
Congratulations to our Head Coach, Kyle Jeffrey, recipient of the Coaching Association of Ontario, Everyone Matters Coach Award for 2013.
