FUNSports Champion
Laurence Vincent Lapointe-National Women’s Canoe

Laurence is the GOAT (Greatest of all time) in  Women’s Canoe. She has been a World Champion an amazing 13 times.

As great an athlete as she is, she is an equally great person-with a big heart.  LVL played with the kids all day at our National Trials event and sold more 50/50 tickets than anyone else by a long shot.  She is not only the world record holder in sprint canoe she is the FUNSports record holder in 50/50 sales. We can’t thank you enough for the weekend you gave us.
