Posted on Updated on

As always, the Arts Umbrella performance was amazing.

It’s pretty breathtaking when you consider how little time these kids have been exposed to dance.

Phenomenal originality combined with a remarkable ability to get the best out of all the performers.

Mallorie has to be regarded as one of the world’s best female sprint canoeists. She is the Canadian champion at every distance she competes in, but has virtually no international circuit to test herself against. If she did compete internationally on a regular basis, we’d be looking at the career of a World Champion.

She won the Junior and Senior C1 (Canadian 1) titles at all distances — 200, 500 & 1,000m — at last summer’s Canadian championships in Dartmouth.

She helped us out in our CBC profile of the Burloak Canoe and Kayak Club for the Beijing Summer Olympics.
