In congratulating them we recognise their unstinting effort and dedication to their sport and bringing their natural talent to a peak, resulting in nothing short of truly magnificent performances in the 2017 championships.
And we must not forget the other athletes that took part or those that support them, who are largely in the background and unseen.
Wow! Truly great achievements.
Come and celebrate their success when Liam, Jeanette and Emma are interviewed on Sunday 3rd September 2017, starting at 1:20pm, followed by a presentation at about 1:30 and then autographs and photo signings in the signing tent at approx 1:35pm.”

The majority of the Junior team has been selected and the list is available on the British Canoeing website: Canoe Sprint International Panel Statement 31st May 2017.
The last remaining Junior selection for the Under 18 K2 500m event will be considered following the result of the Boys A K2 500m race at the June 2017 national regatta tomorrow (race 217 at 12:09).
The Under 23 selections will be considered by the International Panel at their next meeting, using the results of the races held at the June 2017 regatta.
The Sprint and Marathon International Panels would like to clarify the following points regarding the selection process for the 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint Senior World Championships, 2017 ECA Canoe Sprint Senior European Championships and the 2017 ICF World Canoe Marathon Championships.
- Nominations for selection for the 5K events at the 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint Senior World Championships and the ECA Canoe Sprint European Championships will be primarily based on results of the 5K events at the 2017 June National Regatta.
- Nominations for selection for all other ICF Canoe Sprint Senior World Championships and ECA Canoe Sprint European Championships events will be primarily based on results at the 2017 July National Regatta.
- To be eligible for selection for the ICF World Canoe Marathon Championships, it is not a requirement that athletes compete at the ECA European Canoe Marathon Championships. This applies to the Junior, U23 and Senior categories.
