    Winning the gold at a prestigious championship is certainly a great feat but the glory becomes all the more special when the performers create history. This is exactly what has happened with young quartet of Mississauga Canoe Club- Emily Howard, Zeyana Laplante, Emily Jenkins & Vanessa Oly have not only clinched gold at the Canada Sprint Canoe event but have also set the record of being the youngest team to win junior women C-4 title ever in the championship’s 113-year old history.

    It was quite a surprise for the young girls who were literally overwhelmed when they realized about their newly set record.

    “We were very surprised”, remarked Howard who as Grade X student from Lome Park Secondary School.

    “We did not have any clue that we would win the gold, let alone this very fact of creating the record of being the youngest squad to do so- we thought the best we could reach up to is 4th.”

    The 17 year old Vanessa Oly is the oldest member of the quartet while Jenkins is sixteen & Laplante & Howard are both 15.

    The team is even proud of the fact that it’s the 2nd time on a row that Mississauga Canoe Club won the junior women C-4 title. Howard stressed that it’s quite a rare phenomenon for a canoe club to achieve such feat for 2 years straight.

    Heading to the final round, the team had no experience of paddling together & coach Jeffery altered their configuration as a strategy to compensate for the strong winds. There were 2 right-handed paddlers for the front who were followed left handers.

    Jenkins & Howard also won the bronze medal in C-2 senior women event.  Their club won all together twenty-three medals at the nationals.

    A determined 14 year old UAE teen ice skater Amira Moati has got big plans for the upcoming Pyeongchang hosted Winter Olympics 2018. The bright skater is determined to come up as a pro skater and she trains 6 hours every day, 6 days of a week with the hope of achieving something really worthy at upcoming Games.

    Amira had always been fascinated about the sport since she saw her mother performing on a couple of blades when she was just 3 years old. In spite of her tender age, Amira has already competed in several international contests in Russia, Bulgaria & Austria, added to last 4 Middle East open championships.

    However, in the meantime, the young achiever is primarily focused on Open Figure UAE Skating Championships which is about to be held at Dubai, on 16th & 17th May.

    “I have been into training especially for this particular event & I am eagerly looking up to it”, stated Amira whose father is an Egyptian & mother a Russian.

    “I simply love everything about the sport- right from the music to the clothes to routines. It is my dream to accomplish something at the next South Korea Winter Olympics.”

    Amira would be participating in platinum category which is meant for most accomplished ice skaters & would perform 3 routines in the championship.

    Amira had her first ever tryst with ice with her mum.

    “I was eager to skate on ice along with her & hence my mother got me the skates”, Amira continued. “I simply copied her & found it easier to skate”.

    As Amira turned 5 she shifted to Chelabinski to train under a good skating coach. The place was near to Amira’s mom’s paternal house near Ural mountains.
