Tough women making their mark as ice canoe team
Ice canoeing is one tough sport, unique to this province. Teams of canoeists powered their way through those unforgiving floes on the St-Lawrence heaving their way from Quebec City to Levis and back. Strong, intensely trained men usually compete in this sport. Up until recent years, there are increasing amounts of women with their own teams. But rare among them is to have a team where almost all the women in the canoe had a baby over the past year or so. Jacquie Czernin met up with the women from team George V as they got geared up for the big race.
