Chilliwack’s Jazmyne Denhollander continues her ascension in the world of international kayaking

Canadian kayaker from Chilliwack

Chilliwack's Jazmyne Denhollander will get a good look at Europe as she represents Canada in international kayaking competition.

Two athletes with Chilliwack ties have secured spots on Canada’s national kayak team.

Jazmyne Denhollander and David Ford competed in team trials, at Pemberton’s Innergex Rutherford Whitewater Park.

Canoe/Kayak Canada’s slalom high performance committee crunched the numbers, naming five athletes to the senior elite team and three to the senior A team.

Denhollander earned a spot on the women’s single-person kayak senior A squad.

Ford, a five time Olympian who lived in Chilliwack for several years before moving to Edmonton, produced three consistent runs and grabbed a spot on the men’s single-person kayak team.

Denhollander’s team will represent Canada at three World Cups in Europe starting June 6 and both teams will compete in World Cups four and five.

Both will make their way back to the United States to compete at World Championships in Deep Creek, MD from September 17 to 21.

The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence hosted the team trials with help from Canoe/Kayak BC and Canoe/Kayak Canada.
