Laurence Vincent-Lapointe had a dominant race on the world stage and achieved the silver medal in the women’s C-1 200-metre race. This helps clear her name as they found an “adverse analytical finding” from a drug test in July 2019. If the IOC didn’t eventually allow her to compete she would have missed out on the debut of this event. And Lapointe has owned the sport of canoeing for more than a decade.
The women’s C-1 200-metre race was on Thursday at the blazing hot Sea Forest Waterway. Vincent-Lapointe had to keep her mentality to “One powerful stroke at a time.” to keep the lead over the late challengers during the race. The gold medal went to the 19-year-old America Nevim Harrison who posted a time of 45.932.
Vincent- Lapointe finished the race with a time of 46.786 to secure silver. Bronze went to The Ukrainian Luidmyla Luzan who finished with a time of 47.034. There was another Canadian in this race, Katie Vincent from Mississauga, Ontario placed 8th with a time of 47.834 seconds.
