Two members of the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club picked up medals at the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Que., on Monday.
Keiffer Johnson and Zach Morgan teamed up to finish third in the C2 1,000 metres. The canoeists crossed the line in four minutes 31.17 seconds for a bronze finish.
Johnson and Morgan crossed the finish line in a boat that previously had helped another team get on a podium.
The boat's original owners won bronze for Team Kazakhstan at the 2013 ICF Junior and U-23 Canoe Sprint World Championships in Welland, Ont. Johnson and Morgan bought the gently used B.C.-blue boat from the team and named her "Kaz" in honour of her previous victories.
Monday was the first day of canoe and kayak competition, and Johnson also competed in the C1 500m. He made it to the final, finishing fifth in 2:21.25.
Brook Mclean, another member of the KCKC, competed in three events Monday.
She made the final and was fifth in the C1 500m, finishing in 2:55.69, and teamed up with Maple Ridge's Yasmine Semeniuk, Prince George's Gemma Hansen and Danielle Caron of Nanaimo to take fifth in the C4 500m.
Mclean and Semeniuk also competed in the C2 500m, but missed out on the final and finished sixth.
There are multiple events scheduled for today and Wednesday, with the canoe/kayak competition to conclude Thursday. Jake Goddard of Kamloops also is to participate for B.C.
There also will be two Kamloops athletes in throwing competitions this week. Hammer thrower Adam Keenan and Mason Kereszti, who tosses javelin, are set to throw Thursday.
This is the second week of competition at the Canada Summer Games.
In Week 1, Westsyde's Joe Davis and the B.C. men's basketball team finished out of the medals, while Jesse Bazergui of the TRU WolfPack helped the B.C. men's volleyball team to a bronze medal.
