Annual Newsletter - Oct 2014

SDCKT wins 79 Medals at National Championships with ... Coach Barlow recognized with the Chris Barlow K4 Men's Trophy.
As many SDCKT alumni & their parents know competing on Lake Lanier (site of the 1996 Olympic games for Sprint Canoe/Kayak) can be challenging with high temperatures and high humidity. However the weather was kind this year at the USA Sprint National Club Championships, with San Diego like weather for all 3 days of competition! After all the racing was complete SDCKT came
home with a 3rd place finish overall in points and 79 combined medals! After 18 years as the Head Coach of SDCKT and racing in the K4 as a member of the 1992 Olympic Team, Coach Barlow was recognized for his contribution to the sport of Olympic Canoe/Kayak with the Chris Barlow K4 Men's Trophy. Awarded to the team that receives the most combined points for Men's K4 from all age groups.
(Chris is pictured holding the trophy, with SDCKT Board Member Miguel Carrillo - who designed and built the trophy - and his wife Cris.

SDCKT celebrated Olympic Day 2014 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games on 23 June 1894 at the Sorbonne in Paris. It is an international effort to promote fitness and well-being in addition to the Olympic ideals of Fair Play, Perseverance, Respect and Sportsmanship, and is supported by the USA Olympic Committee. It is celebrated annually by thousands of people in more than 160 countries. SDCKT joined in the celebration to showcase our Olympic sport of Canoe & Kayak and highlight our amazing athletes to the local San Diego community. Council member Ed Harris was in attendance to recognize the Team and its athletes with a Proclamation of the City of San Diego Council that declared June 21, 2014 to be “SAN DIEGO CANOE KAYAK TEAM” in the City of San Diego!
