Carol Love Honoured in Petro-Canada Coaching Excellence Awards

The Canadian Women’s Eight coach is amongst the recipients of the prestigious award that recognizes coaching excellence in elite international sport.

Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) congratulates National Women’s Team coach Carol Love on being a recipient of the 2023 Petro-Canada Coaching Excellence Awards. Love receives the honour for leading the Women’s Eight to a bronze medal at the 2022 World Rowing Championships in Racine, Czech Republic.

The medal in Racine capped a tremendous 2022 international season for the Women’s Eight that saw the crew reach the podium at the two World Rowing Cup regattas leading into the World Rowing Championships. Earlier this year, Love, who represented Canada at the Montreal 1976 Olympics when women’s rowing made its Olympic Games debut, lead the Women’s Eight to qualification for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympics, where the crew will be the defending Olympic champions.
