The CEC is proud to announce the athletes who have been selected to represent Canada at the 2017 Youth World Championships from August 30 – September 10, 2017 in Innsbruck, Austria. Congratulations to all of these athletes!
Canada was able to select four athletes in each discipline and two overall athletes that will compete in all three disciplines. Sometimes these selections overlapped between the individual disciplines and the overall ranking, resulting in less than six athletes per discipline at times.
Athletes listed under each discipline will compete for a ranking in that discipline only while the two top-ranked overall athletes will compete in all three disciplines for a chance to qualify for the Olympic-style event held on the last two days of the competition. This two-day event will also be a qualifier for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games for the Youth A categories: the top 13 ranked athletes in male and female after this two-day event will be able to compete in the YOG in Buenos Aries in 2018.
Congratulations to everyone selected to the team, we look forward to seeing you in training camp at the start of July!
