Costa Rica Take Bronze in First International Kayak Tournament
Costa Rica earned the bronze medal over the weekend in Cookeville, Tennessee, after participating in the first-ever PanAmerican Delegation Kayak Bass Tournament.
United States and Canada took the gold and silver, respectively.
Teams from the National Fishing Club and the Amateur Fishing Club traveled to unknown waters to compete.
“The Ticos did extremely well considering that they were fishing in waters they never fished for a species that is not native to Costa Rica, and competing against professional bass anglers,” said Henry Marin, project manager for the Federacion Costarricense de Pesca and board member of the PanAmerican Delegation.
In total, eight countries participated in the event which is expected to grow annually. Costa Rica is hosting a PanAmerican tarpon tournament in September.
