Adam van Koeverden is, quite simply, one of Canada's great Olympic athletes.
A winner of four Olympic medals, including a gold, two silvers and a bronze over four Olympic Games in Sprint Kayak, flag-bearer for Canada at two Olympics, Lou Marsh trophy winner and two time sprint kayak World Champion, van Koeverden was at the forefront of his sport for over a decade and a half.
A resident of Burlington, Adam van Koeverden trained at Burloak Canoe Club.
Away from the water van Koeverden is as notable for giving back to the community and the world. He is an athlete ambassador for Right to Play, and the David Suzuki Foundation, and a National Spokesperson for Colon Cancer Canada. He has spoken on behalf of the World Wildlife Fund and at countless schools on the importance of healthy and active living, community involvement, and his experiences as a Canadian Olympian.
