I have been following the Brazilian Canoe Slalom Team since 2012. In these 3 years they have made stellar progress towards their podium hopes at their home Rio Olympics.
The statistics reveal a very high historical correlation between Junior World Champions and future Olympic medallist – so you wouldn’t bet against Ana Satila being on the podium on her home course in Rio next summer! Read my latest article to find out why.
The article includes:
- Wonderful photography again from Neil Proctor
- Quotes from Lisa Micheler-Jones, Ana Satila & Guille Diez-Canedo
- Highlights of Brazilian team results
You can also read the original 2013 “An Evening with the Brazilian Canoe Slalom Team” article here.
Here is a full listing and links to my 2015 articles posted on Sportscene.tv during 2015. For live ICF race commentary follow me on Twitter @gregiej.

If you are an accomplished slalom paddler then good luck this season and alternatively if you are completely new to canoeing then I hope the above post encourages you to pick up a paddle for the first time. Happy reading.
