𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐨𝐞 𝐋𝐞𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐝: One of my role models growing up was @gabrielcanoe ! He helped me when I was younger and was an inspiration for me watching him rip it in the back of the C2.
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐑𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐌𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐲: One of my favourite race memories was making the final for the first time in C2 at the 2009 Sherbrooke nationals. It was my first full year canoeing and I partnered with a kayaker from my club Brandon Lind. We trained a couple times during the summer and had a really good heat and ended up making the final. Not only was it fun to do, but it was the first time in my paddling career that I proved to myself that I could do achieve the goals I set out. Flash forward to 2018 nationals in Sherbrooke, and not only did being back at the course bring back those memories, but by chance there was a picture on the cover of Brandon and I on the folder given to all the clubs. This made it even sweeter to go back to Sherbrooke.
