Cuban canoeist José Ramón Pelier will seek today a medal in the single-seater (C-1) at 1,500 meters, a test that will close the World Canoeing Championship in Duisburg, Germany, the first event that distributes places in this sport for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

After finishing this Saturday in tenth place -first in the B final- of the C-1 at a thousand meters, Pelier will fight to climb on the podium in the direct final of the strong event, in which he has won medals before.

Kayakists Daylén Rodríguez and Yurieni Guerra will also be in action today at the Wedau Regatta Channel, located to the south of the German city, who will compete in the final B –granting places tenth to eighteenth- in the two-seater (K- 2) 500 meters.

Daylén and Yurieni were left out of the final A this Saturday when they finished sixth in the third semifinal, on a day when the Cuban canoeist Yarisleidis Cirilo finished sixth in the final A of the two-seater (C-2), 500 meters next to the 17-year-old girl, Yinnoly Francheska.

It should be noted that Cirilo and her new boat partner, Francheska, made their international debut in Duisburg, for which the performance qualifies as very good for being included among the pairs that discussed medals and won the ticket for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
