Kiran VAN RIJN, Graduate Student And Athlete (1975-2005)
B.C. rower who competed for Canada had devoted himself to the sport since boyhood
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, September 28, 2005, Page S9
Victoria -- The first sign of trouble was the sculler rolling from his shell into the lake. Kiran VAN RIJN, a former national team member, was rowing in an ordinary training session on Burnaby Lake last Wednesday when he collapsed.
Mr. VAN RIJN managed to haul himself from water into a powerboat operated by Dick McCLURE, a hall-of-fame coach who won a silver medal for Canada in the eights at the 1956 Olympics.
Mr. VAN RIJN complained of giddiness and lightheadedness. As his statements became nonsensical, Mr. McCLURE raced to shore. The rower collapsed again in the boat and stopped breathing. He was lifted from the boat and placed on the dock where a lifejacket was used to support his head.
An ambulance was called, but despite the efforts of paramedics Mr. VAN RIJN died. He was 29.
On August 7, he had finished fifth as a finalist in the senior men's single sculls at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta at Port Dalhousie, Ontario
In 2001, he rowed for Canada in the double sculls at the Princeton World Cup. Mr. VAN RIJN, paired with Brian Siebert of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta., finished fourth on Mercer Lake in Princeton, N.J. The same pair won the men's senior double sculls at the Henley in In recent years, Mr. VAN RIJN rowed for the varsity team at the University of Toronto, where he was completing his doctorate. He teamed with Ming-Chang TSAI to win the Ontario University Athletics gold in the men's doubles earlier this year. He also won men's singles titles at consecutive regattas for the Blues in the 2003 season.
"Rowing is a sport that can reward those who keep at it for a long time," he told the Varsity student newspaper two years ago. "Getting to where I am now was a very gradual process, achieving little bit by little bit."
In 1998, Mr. VAN RIJN won four gold medals at the Central Ontario Rowing Championships on Martindale Pond at St. Catharines, Ontario He took the intermediate heavyweight single title and belonged to Ridley Grad Boat Club crews that won the men's double, quad and eights.
He had taken up rowing at the suggestion of his Grade 9 teacher. A graduate of St. George's School in Vancouver, Mr. VAN RIJN later earned a bachelor of science degree at the University of British Columbia, followed by a bachelor of arts in English and history at the University of Victoria.
He completed a master's degree at Toronto and had been working on a doctorate at the university's Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology. He was examining the marketing to hospitals of expensive medical-imaging technologies such as ultrasound in the latter half of the last century.
On the death of his 90-year-old paternal grandmother two years ago, Mr. VAN RIJN wrote an obituary for the Globe and Mail's Lives Lived column. He noted how in her years of travel she had presciently left Berlin in 1939, Japan in 1941, and China on the evening of the bloody crackdown at Tiananmen Square.
On Saturday morning, 75 members of the Burnaby Lake Rowing Club gathered at lakeside to observe a moment of silence. Mr. McCLURE spoke a few words. Flowers and petals were scattered on the placid waters. So many attended the brief service, the floating wooden dock began to sink, so the mourners retreated to the concrete wharf, their ankles wet and their hearts heavy.
Kiran VAN RIJN was born in Vancouver on December 18, 1975. He died of cardiac arrhythmia on September 21, 2005. He was 29. He leaves his parents, Carol and Dr. Theo VAN RIJN, and a younger sister, Catriana, as well as a grandmother, Katherine HICKEY, of London, Ontario
