In each of the five classes (C1W, C1M, C2, K1W, K1M) selection was based on the best of two runs on Saturday and two single race results on Sunday, with the best two results from three counting. International panel selectors then reviewed the results in line with the published policy to ensure the necessary performance standards had been met and selected both teams accordingly.
The quality of the performance from all the Scottish paddlers was excellent , for the first ever junior selection series taking place on the Olympic venue reflecting the high standard and level of dedication of all Paddlers, Coaches, Parents and volunteers. Congratulation to all and all the best wishes for the rest of the competition season.
