Montreal, March 4, 2016 - From March 5 to 12, our eyes will turn to Barcelona, Spain, host of the 2016 Finn European Championships. Martin Robitaille, athlete on the Canadian team and great Quebec hope, will compete in the Championships to qualify for the Rio Olympics.
Canada has officially qualified in Finn class for the next Olympics. Now Sail Canada has to choose which athletes will go to Rio to represent the country. Athletes will give everything to try to realize their dream.
After having spent the winter training in Florida and finished in 19th position at the ISAF World Cup in Miami, Martin will be the next weeks in Europe to compete in several important competitions like the Finn World Cup and the ISAF World Cup Hyeres.
As this is a qualification for the Games, Martin expects to win and wants it. The 23 year old sailor from Deux-Montagnes will give his best. At his side will be his coach Rosie Chapman and together they will try to reach the top of the podium.
Tom Ramshaw from Toronto will be also on this path to qualify for Brazil.
