The team of men, women and junior paddlers who will represent the United States at next year's International Canoe Federation Freestyle Kayak World Championships was selected this week in Missoula, MT. Amazing performances were turned in during the three-day event that was also the culmination of the USA Freestyle Kayak National Point Series that determines national champions. Here are some of SI's best shots from photographer David E. Klutho.
