Initial Meetings with London 2012

Sept. 10, 2008, 3:57 a.m. (ET)

On September 8th and 9th, USA Canoe & Kayak participated in initial meetings and site visits of the 2012 whitewater venue in Waltham Cross and flatwater venue in Eton Dorney, England.

The flatwater venue is already in existance and was used for the 2005 Rowing World Championships, while the whitewater venue will be completely new with ground breaking in spring 2009. Both are incredible venues that will have a lasting legacy to GB sport.

Thank you to Samantha Curling at LOCOG, John Birch of the Lea River Authority and Shaun Craven, Head Coach of the Britsh Mens Flatwater Team for their time, energy and insight.
