Delta Deas Rowing Club’s junior program is well-represented on the Canadian team that will be competing at this weekend’s CanAmMex Regatta in Florida.
Quinn Torok, Caitlin Lawrence and Sophie Brynne-Atkins will be in Canadian colours thanks to their performances at the recent Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) Junior Selection Camp.
Torok is one of just two B.C. rowers among the 12 selected to the junior men’s team. Lawrence and Byrne-Atkins are two of four B.C. rowers on the women’s team.
“Prior to our Junior Selection Camp, these athletes were identified as potential National Team athletes through their performances at on-water qualification events and ergometer testing,” said Adam Parfitt, RCA National Team Operations Director. “They have worked hard to get to this point, and we are excited for our NextGen high performance rowers to get the opportunity to compete for Canada at the international level.”
The Canadian team is currently part of a week-long training camp at the U.S. National Rowing Centre prior to the regatta.
