    CANADIAN SPORT AWARDS In 1997, Caroline Brunet put together one of the greatest performances ever by a Canadian athlete sweeping the three gold medals in the women's kayak solo events at the world championships held in Dartmouth, N.S. The unprecedented performance earned her this award one year ago.

    That's a hard act to follow for any athlete but Brunet came agonizingly close to a repeat performance this past summer. At the 1998 world championships, held in the Mecca of paddling at Szeged, Hungary, Brunet ruled the waters once more. After placing second in the K-1 1,000 metres the Lac-Beauport resident churned to gold in the K-1 500 and K- 1 200.

    "I was pretty upset at not winning the 1,000 metre race," said Brunet, a three-time Olympian with 12 career medals over eight world championship appearances as well as the Olympic silver in 1996. "I knew there was a lot of expectations on me but I tried to not think about it too much. I came to the worlds fully prepared physically and mentally and that was the difference. I think the 500 win in Hungary was bigger than the year before because I won by a wider margin and I beat a girl (Katrin Borchert of Australia) who had really dominated me all season."

    Now she'll begin mapping out a strategy to take her to the top podium step at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia.
