Laurence Vincent-Lapointe and Katie Vincent stole the show on day two of the Canadian sprint canoe kayak team trials, breaking their own 2017 world record in the women’s C-2 500 metres event at the Lake Lanier Olympic Park in Gainesville, Georgia.

It was the second world record in as many days for Vincent-Lapointe, who lowered her own personal best time in the C1 200 on the opening day of competition.

“It’s a second world record broken this week-end by our women’s canoe team and we could not be happier with such great results so early in the season,” said Anders Gustafsson, new head coach of Canoe Kayak Canada’s sprint team.

“Our team’s overall results so far show that we have been preparing the team well and they have what it takes to compete on the world stage.”

After breaking the record in the C-1 race on Friday, Vincent Lapointe and Vincent beat their last world record by four seconds with a time of 1:52.745 in the C2 500.

Vincent-Lapointe broke her personal best time by taking first place in the women’s C-1 200 metre event in a fast time of 45.350 seconds. C2 teammate Vincent took second place with a time of 46.586, followed by Hannah MacIntosh in a time of 49.034.

“I am very happy with my result and could not have done better for my first race of the year, breaking my world records this early in the season shows that the hard work is paying off,” Vincent-Lapointe said.

“I am pretty confident with my training and results and I know it is going to go very well for the whole season this year.”
