Lauryn Cheung, Meghan Cheung, Zaffia Laplante and Elliot Hoyt were among the 40 athletes named to the roster on Nov. 30.

All four are members of the Fort Langley Canoe Club and are coached by Emily Raymond.

Athletes were selected based on their results from the past season including national team selection, BC performance standard or nomination by the Coach’s Technical Committee. The complete selection criteria is available on the CKBC website.
