One of our own High Performance athletes was recently honoured with a Town of Richmond Hill Sport Champion Award! David Stewart was one of only 6 individuals, 2 coaches and 2 community teams who were honoured with this award. David was recognized for his outstanding performance at the Canadian National CanoeKayak Championships last August when he won the U16 Men’s 1000M Gold Medal, the fastest paddler in Canada in his age group and event!
The presentation of the Sport Champion Award was at a special ceremony held on March 31st when David was in Florida at the Ontario CanoeKayak Team training camp, so he was not able to attend. Instead, David’s sister Katy ably represented him at the event, accepting the award on his behalf.
RHCC is thrilled that David was honoured with this award and we look forward to another very successful season from all of our competitive paddlers!
