Four junior players together (from the left) the USAs Kevin Bathurst with Canadas David Grainger, Gavin Wolpert, and Vincent Demuy. The Canadian junior trails are held at the end of the Worlds.

 

 

Mainstays of one of Canadas best teams Jurek Czyzowicz and Darren Wolpert (Gavins older brother). Their team, Fergani, was the only Canadian team to make it to the round of 32 in the Rosenblum, thus allowing either Canada or Mexico to have a spot in the 2003 Bermuda Bowl (in 2003 there will be a playoff between the two countries). As winners of the 2000 Canadian Team Championship, Jurek and Darren would have had a chance to play in the 2001 Bermuda Bowl, but the Canada/Mexico/Bermuda spot was eliminated when all three countries did poorly in the 2000 Olympiad, an event that Jurek and Darren did not play in but suffered the consequences of.
