Chilliwack’s Kaden McCann has won gold at the Wake Canada 2016 Canadian National Championships.
The teenager enjoyed home-lake advantage last weekend as he competed at Abbotsford’s Albert Dyck Park.
The 13 year old challenged the U-14 boy’s division in the straightline cable event.
A cable system towed Kaden twice through a course of jumps and rail features. He tried to complete as many technically difficult tricks as possible, with as much style as possible.
While he grabbed gold, 12 year old brother Kory bagged bronze and 14 year old Zakk Harman (North Vancouver) scored silver.
A second event saw the boys towed behind a Nautique G23 wakeboard boat.
Kory won a second bronze medal, finishing third behind Harman (first) and Alberta’s Joey Gurr.
Another Chilliwack rider found her way into the medal mix as nine year old Maria Hill finished second in the U-10 girl’s division.
Her father, veteran pro rider and long-time Cultus Lake resident Jay Hill, placed third in the master’s division.
Along with their medals, Kaden and Kory won new Liquid Force wakeboards.
Kory also won a Sandbox helmet, as did Maria Hill.
It’s been a successful summer for the McCann boys.
Kory won silver two weeks ago at the BC Summer Games and Kaden and Korey finished 2-3 at the Provincial Wakeboard Championships.
