Keiffer Johnson of the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club added to his medal count at the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Que., on Tuesday.
Johnson competed in the C1 200 metres and finished second in his heat, crossing the finish line in 44.910 seconds. He went on to take the bronze medal in the final, with a time of 47.210.
Johnson was the only Kamloops competitor to medal Tuesday.
Brooke Mclean canoed in the C1 200m women’s, and finished third in her heat with a time of 57.840. That time was good enough to get her into the final, where she placed fourth, just under five seconds behind the leader, with a time of one minute, 0.020 seconds.
Mclean also raced in the C1 1000m final after finishing third in her heat. She finished fifth, in 6:20.980.
Zach Morgan, also a member of the KCKC, was the lone Kamloops competitor in the C1 1,000m event. After making the final with a time of four minutes 20.640 seconds, Morgan missed the podium by three seconds and settled for fourth place, in 4:35.980.
Morgan and Johnson joined Gerissen Tang of Vancouver and Hank Chin Hung Wang of Maple Ridge for the IC4 1000m. The team missed the final, finishing last in its heat, but bounced back to win the consolation final over Team Saskatchewan with a time of 4:04.700.
The same IC4 team will compete in today’s 200m race and Johnson and Morgan will pair up for the C2 5,000m.
Kamloops’s athletes in the throwing events will be in action today as well.
Adam Keenan will be competing in the hammer throw and Mason Kereszti will be throwing javelin.
The Canada Summer Games are scheduled to wrap up Saturday.
