Working with the Paddling Committee she is in charge of defining the

|EOD Athlete Testing in Ottawa
by Graeme Lind
On January 30, approximately 35 paddlers from the Carleton Place,
Ottawa River and Rideau Canoe Clubs gathered in Ottawa to participate in
the inaugural EOD Athlete Testing.
Beginning at Carleton Heights School, the athletes performed various
fitness tests, including a twenty-meter shuttle run (aka the “beep test”),
a two-minute pushup test and several other tests evaluating core strength,
agility, and upper/lower-body power. The group then continued to the
Carleton University pool where they completed a 300m-swim test!
Congratulations to all twenty Peewee, Bantam, Midget, Juvenile and
Junior Rideau athletes who participated!
