claudia can wijk kerckhoff world paddle awardsA big congratulations to Paddle Canada member Claudia Kerckhoff Van Wijk on receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the World Paddle Awards!

“I am honoured for being recognized for my participation and contribution to the sport of whitewater paddling. I am still happiest when in my kayak, especially when running a challenging section of river, so its extremely fulfilling to introduce others to this amazing sport. This I have been able to do for thousands of people.  A summer day doesn’t go by when I don’t hear: ‘thank you, this was the best day of my life!”

With a decorated career as a slalom and whitewater athlete, Claudia’s infectious enthusiasm for the sport has inspired countless others. Way to go, Claudia!
