Proper Suncare, is proper Skincare, and to take proper care of your skin, you have to take the enitre process seriously. When we Started Vertra Elemental Resistance in 2004, we vowed to do just that, to make a serious push and bring skincare awareness to the forefront of our market because until now, it has basically been a category that has been mostly taken for granted. Our Athletes that participate in the paddlesports industry are amongst the most prolific candidates to suffer from sunburn, skin damage, photo-aging and unfortunately in many cases, skin cancer. SIMPLY PUT, quality suncare products for people like us are not an accessory, but a necessity!

Vertra Sunscreen’s Ryan and Patrick Dolan head to the Pan American Championships

Honolulu, Hawaii (October 5, 2010) Vertra Sunscreen’s Ryan and Patrick Dolan, brothers from Kailua, are heading to Mexico City for the 2010 Pan American Championships for Canoe and Kayak.  The races begin October 7th in Mexico City. 

Consistent with all major international events sanctioned by the ICF (International Canoe Federation) these Pan American Championships are of the upmost importance to the USA Canoe/ Kayak National Team. “It is crucial that we place top 5 in the respective events that we enter” says Ryan.  This is one of the first steps to qualifying for the 2012 Olympic Games. The Dolans brothers must place top 5 at this event.  If they fail to do so, they will not be eligible to compete at the 2nd chance Olympic qualifier in 2011.

At the 2011 ICF World Championships, athletes will receive an automatic birth into the 2012 Olympic Games if they place top 10 in any individual event and top 6 in a teamed event. Teams consist of 2 or 4 athletes in a single boat.   Those athletes who do not qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games at the 2011 ICF World Championships, will be eligible to compete at the “2nd chance qualifier” if they placed top 5 at this years Pan American Games. 

Ryan Dolan will be competing in the Following Events:

  • ·      K1 500 Meters

  • ·      K1 200 Meters

  • ·      K2 200 Meters

Patrick Dolan will be competing in the following events:

  • ·      K2 1000 Meters

  • ·    K4 1000 Meters

We are both excited to be racing internationally again,” commented Pat. Earlier this season, the Dolans competed together. At this event however, Ryan will be racing in a single boat, while Pat teams up with fellow National Team athlete Morgan House of Georgia.  “This will be the first time I race an international event in the K1 500 Meters” commented Ryan, “it’ll be competitive, but I am looking forward to the challenge.”
