    CANADIAN SPORT AWARDS Marie-Josee Gibeau-Ouimet of Lachine, Que., and Karen Furneaux of Waverley, N.S., showed that the Canadian paddling team is much more than the Caroline Brunet show with a golden performance in the women's K-2 200 metres at the world championships in Szeged, Hungary.

    Gibeau-Ouimet - an 11-year national team veteran and Furneaux, a national team sophomore - only joined forces at the start of the 1998 season. At the worlds, they upset a powerful Hungarian team which included Olympic K-1 champion Rita Koban.

    "We had the Hungarians in the lane next to us so we were able to stick with them," said Furneaux, 21, a silver medallist in the K-4 200 at the 1997 world championships in Halifax. "Marie-Josee showed this year why she is such a great team paddler and I think we did everything we could as a team in its first year."

    The Canadian team finished the world canoe and kayak championships with four gold medals and one silver. It also won five medals in 1995 but with two gold, two silver and a bronze. In the overall women's team standings, the Canadian women placed first by one point over Hungary.
